Club Kaibigan 25th Anniversary

Hello Club Kaibigan alumni, current members, and friends!  Club Kaibigan is 25 years old and it's time to celebrate.  Founded in 1984 at Whitney High School with members from all over the local area (Artesia, Cerritos, Gahr, St John Bosco, St Joseph, etc.), Club Kaibigan continues to bring together youth to learn about and celebrate Filipino American heritage and culture.  Join us for a fun weekend of good food, friends, music, and memories as we commemorate this milestone.


CK25 - Dinner & Dance

Club Kaibigan alumni, this is your chance to get your groove on, reminisce, and catch up with all those people you bonded with over lunch meetings, sold lumpia with at International Day, and, of course, spent endless hours with rehearsing and preparing for PCN! 

If you have kids, bring 'em. Bring mom & dad along, too, to thank them for all that time they spent feeding us, letting us overrun their houses with bamboo sticks and high school students, and for always supporting Club Kai and all its efforts.

VERY SPECIAL PERFORMANCE: Broadway star and Club Kaibigan past president (87-89) Emy Baysic Vales will give a very special performace at the CK25 Reunion Dinner Dance. Emy's credits include the lead role of Kim in "Miss Saigon" and Ali in the National Tour of "Mamma Mia."
