PAFC and FAR for Fil-Am Vets

This event is produced by the Philippine-American Foundation for Charities and Fil-Am Racing.

Proceeds from our event will partially benefit Filipino-American Veterans who served in World War II. 2017 marks a major milestone in Fil-Am history in that April 9, 2017 will be the 75th Anniversary of the Bataan Death March. President Barack Obama signed the bill awarding Fil-Am soldiers who served in WW II the Congressional Gold Medal. The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest civilian honor in the US. In accordance with Public Law No: 114-265, a gold medal has been struck to honor the Fil-Am veterans of WW II in recognition of their valiant service.
