 Fiesta in America 2017 People’s Ball on Friday, Aug. 11 l 7pm                  

“By custom, the People’s Ball sets the stage for Fiesta In America, the signature indoor event of the northeast Fil-Am community,” said Nanding Mendez, Fiesta In America President and CEO. “Every past staging has brought us together with luminaries in public service and private enterprise. But over a decade has passed since the first gala, whose purpose was to acknowledge Fiesta In America’s supporters. Our People’s Ball has finally outgrown the role of curtain-raiser.” Mended added that the People’s Ball has emerged as a momentous event in its own right.”

This year’s gala will be held in the ballroom of the Hilton DoubleTree Hotel, Newark Liberty International Airport. According to Darlene Borromeo, Chair of the Empowerment Awards Committee, the award recipients are outgoing Consul General Mario L. de Leon, Jr. for Diplomatic and Community Service; Jorge Z. Ortoll for Theatre and the Arts; Lori A. Colineri, DNP, RN, NEA-BC for Global Nursing Leadership; Jan Bednar, MS, BSN, RN, CEN, NEA-BC for Career Development/Professional Equality; Maria Teresa de Vries, RN for Community Outreach; Jeryl Turco Maglio and Family for Life Changing Advocates; and Philippine American Concerned Citizens League (PACCAL) for Organization of the Year.&
