The 6th Annual MFBC Awards Gala was an elegant affair that highlighted the remarkable efforts of business people and entrepreneurs in our province’s Filipino community. This year’s event honours five deserving award recipients, features some of Manitoba’s most well-respected leaders and influencers, and included a special Filipino dinner menu created by the talented Fairmont Winnipeg chefs.
