Students, family, friends and other Western clubs joined the Filipino-American Student Association in celebrating their 21st Annual Heritage Dinner on Saturday, Oct. 24. This year’s dinner brought a new focus on the culture and history of the Philippines.
The theme for the heritage dinner was ‘Perlas ng Silanganan,’ which means ‘Pearl of the Orient Seas.”
The club picked this for the theme because they wanted to highlight the beauty and rich resources of the Philippines, sophomore FASA President Erick Yanzon said.
More than 300 people attended the event held in the Viking Union Multi-Purpose Room.
