Preparations are on-going for the second annual Philippine-American Friendship Dinner, an event that will feature, among others, a special tribute to Outstanding Senior Citizens of Michigan.

Hosted by the US Pinoy for Good Governance-Michigan (USP4GG), the evening event will be held in the St. Josaphat Banquet Center at 26440 Ryan Road, Warren in the evening of July 14, 2018 (Saturday).

The special tribute honors senior citizens for a job well done either as community volunteers or family heads providing all the needs of their children and for their sacrifices and unconditional love.
