This year marked the 37th anniversary of the Feast of Santa Maria Magdalena to be held in San Diego.  Visitors came from all across the country, from Washington state to Florida.  Family, friends, classmates and townmates were again rejoined in our annual celebration carried over from our home town of Kawit.  It was a beautiful day with the southern California sun shining and the cool breeze off San Diego Bay and the Pacific ocean. 

The day started with our mass in celebration of our patron saint which carried on to our traditional "karakol" along with our live band.  A scrumptious feast was provided by food donations from our members and of donations of roast beef and lechon.  The rest of the day was full of live entertainment, games and raffle.  We'd like to thank Dr. Toledo, DDS for his contribution of a 40" LCD HDTV as our grand prize.

The success of all of our events is due to the leadership of our association, the event committees, the volunteers and the generousity of our members.  Without your donations and membership fees, we would not be able to make our event the success we are all able to enjoy.
