We at Philippine Generations only ask this question, because we’ve got a series of dates that most definitely need to go into your calendar:
PG Social, Friday 5th September May 2014
The Socials have always been a brilliant chance for friends, new and old, to come together and bond over a common appreciation of Filipino culture and community life.
Come along to catch up with old friends; come along to meet new people; speak to the Committee members and some of our special guests to find out more about our upcoming events; tell everyone if you are organising something – the PG Social is run for you guys to connect and grow!
So do come join us for a drink and a bite to eat! Details are on our Facebook event
Rex Navarrete returns to London! Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th September 2014
You may have heard on the grapevine that Rex Navarrete is back in London – and like us, we hope that you’re really excited to have a second chance on seeing him perform on our home turf! Rex is doing his part to raise the profile of Filipino comedy (and by extension, culture) around the world, and so we at Philippine Generations are more than happy to support him during his trip to London.
He’ll be back at Bar Rumba, 36 Shaftesbury Avenue W1D 7EP
(nearest Tube Piccadilly Circus), performing on Wednesday 24th
and Thursday 25th September
Based on last year’s sell-out crowds, Rex’s return is bound to be a very popular one. Luckily for you, PG is able to offer you an exclusive early-bird discount deal, just to say thanks for being with us through all of these years, and just for being awesome people in general. Aside from our mailing list, we will be distributing this code on Friday at the PG Social. This deal is available until the 10th September, when tickets go on general release.
Sound good? We hope so! Get booking and we’ll see you there!
Calm AFTER the Storm, Friday 17th October 2014
It’s almost been a year since Typhoon Haiyan slammed into the Philippines and drastically changed the lives of millions of our kababayans. In those days, weeks and months after the tragedy, the Filipino community in the UK – nay, the whole of the UK – rallied behind the survivors and devoted so much time, effort and money into alleviating their suffering and providing hope.
However, the job is not done – after all, how could you rebuild entire communities in just under a year?
This is why a group of big-hearted people have organised the Calm AFTER the Storm
charity gala – an evening of food, song and charity auctions at the Savoy on Friday 17th October
in order to raise funds for the Wonder Foundation
, a centre for vocational training in Cebu that came to be on the frontlines of the aid effort. Since Haiyan, they have directed their skills and resources towards physically rebuilding communities as well as continuing to provide the vocational training that they believe will offer a long-term solution to the poverty of the survivors.
Calm AFTER the Storm aims to keep the memory of those who perished alive, while helping the world to not forget those who have survived and continue to struggle to rebuild their lives.
They are looking for your support in three main ways:
1. Attend their charity gala and have a smashing time knowing that you are supporting a worthwhile project
2. Donatewhatever you can to their fund
3. Share and spread the word to anyone and everyone
They are counting on your generosity, together with that of theirsponsors and patrons, to set this evening as a platform for you to extend your still much needed financial and moral support.
More details are on their Facebook event
and the Wonder Foundation Facebook page
(Like them for more updates), but we will be very fortunate to have one of the organisers come along to the PG Social on Friday 5th
September, so do come along and take advantage of the chance to find out more about this event and the amazing work it is supporting.
