THE UPAAGLA Gala and Awards Night returns this year to the Omni Hotel on March 18, 2023. Sure to be an evening of entertainment, this year’s Gala will be headlined by the multi-talented television actors and models Alexis and Jojo Riguerra. Alexis will also be joined by Christian Ylagan as the hosts for the evening. Attendees will enjoy dancing to live music from the Midnight Motion Band and performances by Amber and other surprise guests.
Consul General Edgar Badajos and Jessica Caloza, Deputy Chief of Staff for Attorney General Rob Bonta, are the keynote speakers for the year’s celebration.
The 2023 Gala will raise money for the benefit of the UPAAGLA Endowment Fund that supports the projects and financial needs of the university, its students and the University of the Philippines community. In 2022, UPAAGLA donated $2,000 to the College of Engineering and raised almost $6,000 for Kaagapay to assist financially-challenged UP students.
The UPAAGLA wishes to thank this year’s major sponsors – The Dichoso Group of Companies, Garcia & Sahni, Asenso, Megaworld and Dinsmore. The organization would also like to thank the Asian Journal, Philippine Post and media partner The Filipino Channel (TFC) for supporting and promoting the event.
