The 72nd Annual George Washington Charity Ball


THE annual George Washington Charity Ball is a much anticipated flagship social event celebrated by the American Association of the Philippines (AAP) since its inception in 1949. As the premier event to kick start the year, it is the event that allows American expatriates, Filipino-Americans, and key leaders in business, politics and social circles to meet up, engage and reconnect.

Now on its 72nd year, the charity ball is not just a charity event but an event where the AAP recognizes the achievements and accomplishments of its members and key business and community leaders. It also serves as a platform for the organization to set up fundraisers for its charitable causes, philanthropic activities and community outreach programs. Furthermore, it serves as a launchpad for future collaborative efforts by the AAP with its partners.

Through its charitable event and fundraiser, AAP is hoping to raise enough funds to continue supporting beneficiaries, scholars, and improve the American Historical Collection. The George Washington Charity Ball will be held at the Marriott Hotel’s Manila Ballroom on February 29 at 6:00 p.m..
