Five years ago, FEGTA held its first ever anniversary ball at the Millenium Reception. It was grand but this time it was grander! Everyone indeed had a “ball”!
On 26 September 2015, around 250 came wearing their best party frock to a night of dinner and dancing at the Grand Star Receptions, Altona. The program was emceed by the dashing Willy Obien. The smart and appealing FEGTA President Luisa Rivo gave a welcome speech and acknowledged the presence of Melba Marginson, Executive Director of the Victorian Immigrant and Refugee Women’s Coalition.
Perla Luetic, Chairperson of the Filipino Community Council of Victoria, rendered an inspiring and motivating speech. During the FEGTA Execom presentation, the President was said, “Each of us have different talents but together we become a strong force that make us attain or even exceed the goals we set ourselves to achieve.” These talented people who worked hard and resulted to a strong team consist of Rading Miranda, Vice President; Marie Zoleta, Secretary; Susan Rodriguez, Treasurer; Jun Alegre, Auditor; Committee members –Glo Moscosa, Mila Sheehan, Edith Feliciano, Sherley Langley, Liza Neos, Gemma Poblete, Lydia Ocap, Juliet Summerhill, Ben Alvares and Tony Casole.
Guests were entertained by the lively Hawaiian dance performed by selected FEGTA members as well as members of other Filipino clubs, the smooth and rhythmic steps of FEGTA Ballroom dance and FEGTA Cultural Dance where dancers swayed to the Alcamphor music. Of course all these moves wouldn’t be possible without the accompaniment of lively music aired by the first gentleman Mr Ernie Rivo.
