Outgoing Vice President’s Message

Excellencies, Distinguished Delegates, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Good evening, and welcome to our 6th annual MFBC Awards Gala, Building a Bright Future at the luxurious Fairmont Winnipeg. While I am unable to physically attend, I join in through spirit with you all for tonight’s awards’ ceremony.

This is the 6th year of the MFBC Awards Gala, and this event has emerged as one of the most important occasions we celebrate for the MFBC. I wish to congratulate the nominees and the successful award recipients. I would also like to thank the participating panel of prestigious judges for all their dedication and commitment in making this evening a resounding success. We continue to raise the bar by bringing together the most influential and inspiring leaders in our province while celebrating Manitoba’s rich Filipino culture. MFBC continues to be the voice of entrepreneurs and business professionals in our province’s Filipino community.

I would like to express my gratitude to all of you who so generously helped us make this event come together smoothly; we couldn’t have done it without you! Last but not least, I would like to thank all of you for joining us this evening. Your attendance has been greatly appreciated and demonstrates your support for our rapidly growing cultural demographic accounting for over 80,000 individuals in Manitoba.

Mabuhay and God Bless!
-Jihan Aquino,
Outgoing Vice President
