Activities

“He who does not look back to where he came from will never reach his destination.”;
– our Guiding Principle

The BBFAA is involved in a variety of activities for its members and the community. These activities enhance the visibility of the Filipinos, educate the children of the immigrants on our culture, and help to preserve the uniquely ethnic Filipino traditions for posterity. Other activities allow us to support charitable institutions and maintain our link with our home country.
