The First Annual Charity Ball, held on November 13, 1993, launched the Filipino Children’s Foundation and marked the beginning of its annual fund-raising drive. The event, a formal dinner-dance featuring performances by local Filipino talents, was highlighted by a keynote address by Jesuit priest Alfred Playoust and a slide presentation by photographer Marissa Roth of street children images from the Philippines.
The following year, the silent auction was introduced and has since been a feature of the yearly event. Over the years, the auction has been a major source of the Foundation’s revenue. Most of the gift items are donated by businesses and individuals.
