Saturday will mark the first ever Filipino Heritage Night, featuring plenty of performing acts, at a Rockets game.
The idea started with Brian Ilagan, a part of the Philippine Sports Association of Texas (PSAOT) that features youths who play sports. Ilagan dreamed of raising funds to help PSAOT kids travel and play sports. Other Filipino groups started joining up and now, the list of groups involved include:
-PNAMH (Philippine Nurses Association of Metropolitan Houston)
-FYP (Filipino Young Professionals)
-PACCTX (Philippine American Chamber of Commerce)
Filipino Heritage Night will take place from 4:30pm-7pm at the Rockets Launch Pad with several performing acts, most with ties to Kollaboration Houston (part of the largest Asian-American talent show in the nation). The following artists are slated to perform:
-Rocko Stedy Narvios
-DJ Mark Q
Proceeds from the event will benefit all the groups' various community outreach programs.
