S eafood City and Phase1 Entertainment present Pasko Expo, an annual Filipino-themed Christmas indoor festival. This all-day event will held on Saturday, December 13th, at the Exposition Hall, Solano Fairgrounds in Vallejo, California. It will feature live entertainment, authentic Filipino food, and various retail vendors. Beneficiaries of the event are the Gawad Kalinga, the Pilipino Youth Coalition (PYC) and the Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots.


Translated to English, “Gawad Kalinga” means “to give care”. Gawad Kalinga (GK) aims to rebuild poverty stricken communities, in the Philippines and throughout the world, by working with its people to create homes and establish programs so the members can become self-sufficient. Joe Millares, Vice President of ANCOP Foundation (USA) says, “Gawad Kalinga is really a movement. We want a transcendental cause that we all can work on.” Pasko Expo will raise public awareness by educating the attendees and showing wares made by the GK community.
