This is a potluck party. Everyone is requested to bring a favorite dish to share for servings of at least 30.  The food committee requests that you put your food contribution in a 9”x 13” tin foil container to make it easier to place on chafing warmers. Thank you!

PAMANA is pleased to provide Lechon (roasted suckling pig) and Lechon Manok (rotisserie chicken).

Entrance is FREE. However,  an admission donation of $5 per person or $10 per family is encouraged to help defray event expenses. The cost to organize the Christmas Party is around $4,700.

There will be a Santa gift giving portion. Parents/grandparents are encouraged to bring a secret gift for their child/children. The event room maybe somewhat darkened for a party atmosphere so, please write your child’s name legibly and conspicuously on the gift. Writing using a fine point Sharpie on a white gift tag taped securely is recommended. When you arrive at the venue, place your secret gift discreetly by the Christmas tree. The welcome program is from 5:00 PM to 5:30 PM with the Santa Gift Giving taking place towards the end of the Welcome Program.
