It was a night of epic proportions for the members and guests of FACCOC’s 20th Anniversary Gala. The room buzzed with laughter and conversation as masked visitors eagerly made their way through the entrance of Disneyland’s Paradise Pier Hotel.
The official induction of the Chamber’s newest Board of Directors marked the start of the night’s program. Guest speakers regaled the audience with their wit and wisdom, including those of The Honorable Consulate General, Leo H. Lim. The pinnacle of the event was the presentation of special achievement awards by President Elena Lapid- Salonga. Several distinguished members, including past FACCOC Presidents, were honored for the support and commitment they’ve pledged to the Chamber which have led to its growth and success.
The festivities continued with live entertainment and music from Marc Hagedorn, Maria Dumatol and Dr. Tess Mauricio, leading to a dance floor full of spirited line dancers. It was clear before the end of the night that the gala had achieved what it intended to do: bring people with a shared vision together to celebrate.
