BFAC you did it again! Another successful Christmas party, a glamourous masquerade ball where the ladies looked amazingly exquisite in their gowns and the gentlemen looked handsome in their suits. The children were beautifully dressed for the occasion. This was one of the best ever Christmas parties BFAC group ever produced.
The Sydney dance group entertained the crowd so well that everyone got up and danced to the music, it was a memorable sight. They had wonderful entertainment throughout the night which was enjoyed immensely by the guests. The guests of honour were MP Mr Peter Toole and the Honourable Mayor Gary Rush of Bathurst.
This is the first time ever in which the dignitaries attended BFAC Bathurst Filipino Association community’s event and we are very honoured, their presence was very much appreciated by the Filipino community and it gives a sense of accomplishment. It was indeed a fantastic Christmas party and a terrific crowd.
The night was well organised, the entertainment and food was enjoyed by all. Thanks to all of the wonderful performers who participated in the event and to all our fellow Filipinos who came from as far as Sydney, Young, Koorawatha, Temora, Orange, Blayney and Lithgow to help us celebrate. A big applause to Bathurst Filipino Association Community Members (BFAC) on their continuous support and generosity which made this possible.
On behalf of BFAC Group I would like to thank our very industrious President Mr Joey Landicho and his lovely wife Ella Landicho for their dedication, generosity and endless support invested to the group.
