2017 Multi-APA Collective Toy Drive

Please join us for our 11th Annual Multi-APA Collective Toy Drive.

We have been doing this for over 10 years and DC Asian Pacific American Film – APA Film & NAAAP DC along with Christian Oh helps get all these other community and APA organizations to help collect toys for charity. This year we are going back to collect toys for Toys for Tots. Considering all the natural disasters our country has faced, they will need so much more toys to be collected. Thus, we are trying to bring a new record amount of brand new donated toys. The format is simple. Basically, we ask that attendees bring an UNWRAPPED toy and take in the fun and networking spirit of the holidays. (If you don’t bring a toy, we ask for a MINIMUM $10 donation).

Please get in the spirit of the holidays and help make a child’s Christmas a little warmer! If your APA group wants to participate, please contact us! Food & Drink Specials will be available all evening and bring your business cards to network and mingle. read more…

SomeNever ReallyGet (SNRG),

FYP-DC aims to elevate the Filipino-American professional to achieve success in their career. The ability to collaborate is crucial for career success, and this is why FYP-DC will host its first-ever conference to discuss the importance of working together.

Purchase Tickets

Our conference theme, ‘Magkaisa’ (Unite), stems from the idea that we need to work together as a team to reach our goals. The combined effect of a team is greater than the sum of individual efforts. When individuals unite together it creates a diverse environment leading to enhance creativity and decision-making. The collaboration will lead to an increased success in our ability to problem solve in an efficient and effective manner. We believe this can only happen if we unite, together. read more…

FYP x NaFFAA R2 Charity Happy Hour for Filipino Veterans!

100% of the proceeds from bar sales and donations will be going to FilVetRep and every little bit you can donate helps. Please think of attending the event and donating to the cause. Our veterans who paved the way for us today with their lives deserve the recognition that has been overdue to them for over 70 years.

We cannot continue to let our veterans close their eyes for the last time without them receiving the recognition they deserve.

Please help us give our veterans the recognition they deserve and also help contribute to the preservation of our shared history by attending our event. Invite other community leaders, organizations, veterans, and supporters of our cause to the event. Thank you for your help and we hope to see you soon!
