Nearly 500 guests are expected to attend this extravagant evening, themed “Driven from Within,” beginning with a cocktail reception and multi-course dinner. Live entertainment and a cultural showcase follow; then guests are free to dance the night away to the sounds of Kansas City’s own MultiPhonic.

Tickets are $89 per person through September 6, after which they increase to $99 (based on availability). Seats may be reserved online at In addition to tickets, information is available online for sponsorship, underwriting, table hosting, and advertising opportunities. Proceeds benefit the Filipino Cultural Center and the many activities of the Filipino Association.
