Members of the local Filipino community will put together an authentic menu for the reception at the cocktail-style fundraiser. In addition, the Northumberland Multicultural Dance Troupe, headed by Thelma Dillon, will present a variety of folk dances hailing from various parts of the Philippines. You can round off the night with the dynamic five-piece band EZRock, a regular at the popular Bistro Manila in Toronto.
