Fashion with a Mission


Daly City, CA – April 7, 2018 – “Fashion with a Mission” is the theme for the annual fundraising event of the Philippine Medical Society of Northern California (PMSNC). A special performance by comedian Rex Navarrete and a fashion show by humanitarian designer Gia Galicia will headline the event.

Designers Amy Lai, Rolando Carlin, Adrine Karapetyan, Eva Mejl, Coco Melody and Puey Quinones will also be featured. Proceeds will benefit next year’s medical mission in Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya. PMSNC has been conducting annual medical missions since 1986.

PMSNC is also committed to conducting community outreach programs in Northern California. The last outreach program was held in San Jose, California on October 15, 2017 and led by Dr. Rosemarie Padua. Volunteers helped 234 visitors receive free flu vaccines and other screenings. The PMSNC provides scholarships to deserving Filipino-American medical students each year and relies mostly on volunteer hours and donations from individuals and sponsors to help fund its programs.
