Serramonte Ford has been a valued partner of the Pistahan Parade and Festival for the last six years, sponsoring several convertible cars for the Parade Grand Marshals, VIPs and dignitaries, and tow trucks for the parade floats. Earlier this year, Serramonte Ford provided their dealership as rehearsal space in preparation for the Pistahan livestream production last August 8th and 9th.
“Serramonte Ford is honored to be a continued supporter of the Pistahan and our Filipino American community,” said Matt Shone, General Manager of Serramonte Ford.
“Serramonte Ford has been a fixture in the San Francisco Bay Area community for almost fifty years, and we understand that this type of prolonged success only comes with the support of our community. It is our responsibility and privilege to be able to ‘give back’ so vital community programs like the Pistahan can continue, especially during these difficult times.”
“We are very grateful to Serramonte Ford and their amazing management team and friendly staff for their continued support for the Pistahan and the Filipino community,” said FAAE President Al Perez. “This fundraising event will make a positive impact in our ability to sustain our projects that promote Filipino values and preserve cultural traditions. In anticipation of very limited funding sources in the coming year, this initiative will support our mission to broaden awareness and deepen the understanding of Filipino heritage and traditions, and produce events that spark cultural pride and foster community empowerment. If you have enjoyed the programs that we have produced and believe in the positive impact that we are providing, then please support us at this fundraising drive.”
