After many moments, good and bad
The blood, sweat, and tears we gave
It's time to celebrate and show our hearts
To the friends and family that we've made.
With songs and dances, modeling and skits
We mark the end of the year
Giving back to our culture, the homeland we love
A brighter tomorrow is near.
Our theme for PUSOfest this year is Paglago - Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow. "Paglago" is the Tagalog word for "growth." At this event, we will be collecting donations geared toward school supplies, whether it be pens, pencils, backpacks, notebooks, etc., and packing them into a Balikbayan box to be sent to an elementary school in the Philippines. Our ancestors were able to bless us with the fortunate lives we have today, but now it's our turn to give back. We encourage donations that would be sent to the underprivileged in the Philippines that lack the bare necessities in life. We aspire to grow as a general body, grow as a community, and grow as a culture. We've planted the seeds, so here's your opportunity to help us grow.
** Any donations can be given to any E-Board member to be placed in the Balikbayan box up until the day of the event. Donations can also be placed directly into the box on the day of the event! **
Some of the performances that you could expect include: PUSO Cultural, PUSO Ballroom, PUSO Modern, our Barrio Skit, and a set by our SPECIAL GUEST PERFORMER!
In addition to the many talented acts that will be showcased, we will also be revealing our new PUSO Executive Board for the 2018-2019 school year!
