Filipino Heritage Night IV THANK YOU
In behalf of Filipino American Basketball Association of Metropolitan DC, Inc. (FABA) we would like to thank everyone for supporting our once a year event, the Filipino Heritage Night at Verizon Center. It’s an event where we can celebrate our Heritage and Culture in front of a large crowd during the NBA game, Miami Heat vs. Washington Wizard.  This marks the 4th year FABA hosted the event and we are extremely proud that we shattered the record of Filipinos in attendance of all times. It is our hope that you will continue to support and help us for a record breaking attendance next year. 
It was a fun filled day with 12 teams playing in an exhibition games from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm followed with an early entry to watch the shoot around of both teams, Wizards and Heat. It is an opportunity for everyone in attendance to get as close as possible with their favorite Wizards and Heat players.
Then more than 100 kids who bought ticket from FABA got to HIGH FIVE the Washington Wizards or Miami Heat players when they came out from the tunnel onto the court for warm up as they are getting ready for tip off.
It was a riveting rendition of the National Anthem performed by Justine, “ICY” Moral as we witnessed and listened her sing the Star Spangled Banner. “ICY” made us all proud.

Then during the halftime of the game, Kultura Pilipino based in Richmond, Va. WOW the crowd with their performance of “SAYAW IGOROT”. It was a scintillating performance of the group that got the crowd in “AWE”.
AS A BONUS EVERYONE WHO PURCHASED TICKETS FROM US RECEIVED A WASHINGTON WIZARDS T-SHIRT COURTESY OF CUSTOMLINK.
