Vice President Leni Robredo to be guest of honor at U.P. Alumni Awards Night

Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo will be the guest of honor during the first U.P. Alumni Awards Night of the University of the Philippines Alumni Association of Greater Los Angeles (UPAAGLA) scheduled to be livestreamed on Saturday, March 27.

The vice president will be joined by U.P. President Danilo Concepcion, former Ambassador Edgardo Espiritu, former Philippine Consul General of Los Angeles Adelio Cruz, Philippine Airlines President Gilbert Santa Maria, National Artist Ryan Cayabyab, and Filipino American Symphony Orchestra Director and Maestro Robert Shroder, who are all proud U.P. alumni.

The awards night will begin at 5 p.m. PDT/7 p.m. CDT/8 p.m. EDT.

According to UPAAGLA President, Ethel Rubio, nothing can be more fitting than to have a high-caliber, U.P. alumni guest line-up as they honor four fellow U.P. alumni who have made a mark in their respective fields and in the community in the following award categories: Service Recognition, Leadership Recognition, Most Distinguished Alumna/Alumnus, and Lifetime Distinguished Achievement Awards.

With the goal of increasing the profile of U.P. alumni, UPAAGLA hopes that in sharing and highlighting the contributions of Filipinos in the Greater Los Angeles community, this awards night will be a source of inspiration to many.

Explore. Empower. Excel. The UPAAGLA 2021 Awards Night will be livestreamed from the UPAAGLATV YouTube channel through the TFC USA Facebook page, with the support of its corporate sponsors – Paralon and Sonia Delen; and generous donors.
