Hello Fellow Jaycees and Friends,
to take this opportunity to invite you to attend and march in the New
York City Philippine Independence Day Parade on Sunday, June 1st.
Marching in the parade has been a long tradition for the Jaycees.
Friends and Family are welcome to march with the community. How often do
you have the opportunity to walk and march in a parade on Madison Avenue!
For this occasion, we'll be wearing JCI Orange T-shirts (for Adults and
Kids). The cost for the t-shirt is $15 for adults; $12 for kids. The
deadline to purchase the T-shirts is Thursday, May 1st.
Secured payments through PayPal can be made here.
We are inviting you to bring out your dancing shoes and dancing moves. Our chapter, JCI Philippine‐New York, together with Piel Canela Dancers, Joe Burgos, and Susan Goodman of Stand Up! And Speak Out!, will be kicking off the season of Spring with an exciting and fun FUNdraiser called:
WHAT: Latin Dance Party for Philippines
WHEN: March 23, 2014, Sunday
WHERE: SOB's 204 Varick Street, NY NY
DONATION: $15 until March 9 ; $20 March 10 and at the door http://latindanceparty.brownpapertickets.com/
(Any amount is also welcome if you can't make it)
- Live Music and Dance performances
- Intro Salsa & Rueda Classes
- Raffle Prizes and Silent\Live Auction.
It is going to be an incredible fundraising event that will provide entertainment for dancers and non-dancers. Perhaps most importantly, the event is all for a GREAT CAUSE. As you may know, in November 2013, the people of the Philippines were devastated by Typhoon Haiyan, the deadliest typhoon in human history which not only killed 6,000 victims but, also left 12 Million surviving victims badly hurt physically, mentally and emotionally. Proceeds from the Latin Dance Party for PH will go towards the Build-A-Shelter Project directly benefiting the victims of the Typhoon Haiyan. Just imagine, your donation will help re-build someone's home that was destroyed.
Hope to see you all!
The convention was held in Cortland, New York on January 31-February 2, 2014. The convention included an assortment of training sessions, meetings, networking activities, induction of new state officers, and state recognition of outstanding local chapters, members and officers.
In 2013, JCI Philippine-New York successfully completed a total of 70 exciting projects through its five leadership areas (Management, Community Development, Membership, International Affairs and Individual Development) to further the mission of JCI in creating positive change. Some of its key achievements in 2013 include a proclamation from the Mayor of New York City of a JCI Philippine-New York Day on September 28, 2013; awarding two Honorary Memberships; commitment to advancing the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals through its multiple sustainability and fundraising projects; supporting the US Jaycees Foundation through its Oklahoma Disaster Fund; feature in JCTV Episode 6 and; proactively conducting a Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda fundraiser through its Hope for PH project.
2013 Chapter President Bel Molina adds, “Our success in 2013 is chiefly due to the commitment and passion of our alumni, advisers, officers and members. We have certainly showcased our theme of 50 Years Onward: A Tradition of Excellence!”
