“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.” Mendez 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 Meadowlands in East Rutherford, NJ. Theme for this year is, The Disco Era, You Should Be Dancing!
