“Respect and Harmony for a Progressive Multicultural Society”. 
This is the theme of the much-awaited annual state event in the Filipino-Australian social calendar in 2017.

APCO’s Freedom Charity Ball aimed to celebrate the 119th anniversary of the declaration of Philippine independence will be held at Club Marconi, Bossley Park NSW on Saturday, the 10th of June 2017 from 6:30 pm till 12:00 pm.

In keeping with this year’s theme, Filipino-Australians and artists from diverse backgrounds will entertain about 500 guests. This number represents a cross section of the Australian community, representatives of the Philippines and Australian government, corporate sponsors and advertisers, APCO’s project partners, the media, friends and supporters of APCO.

To showcase the uniqueness and elegance of the Philippine national costumes, a Filipiniana and Barong Tagalog competition will again attract men and women to vie for the best in Classical and Modern Filipiniana and Barong Tagalog, respectively.

A choice of $110 VIP ticket per person or a $90 General Patronage/person is inclusive of a sumptuous 3-course dinner, a spectacular entertainment, an opportunity to participate in the Filipiniana and barong Tagalog competition, engage with guests from diverse backgrounds and a lot of dancing. Proceeds will go towards APCO’s Humanitarian, Emergency and Livelihood Program and delivery of community development projects.
