The Philippine Mabuhay Cultural Foundation of Tucson, Inc. was established on August 28, 1989. It is a non-profit organization composed of volunteers banded together to achieve its mission of promoting and enhancing intercultural understanding between the peoples of the United States and the Philippines.
The foundation is at the forefront in promoting the rich Filipino culture to the community through music and dance. Its dance/choral groups and children’s rondalla, a Philippine string ensemble, showcase folk dances, music, and colorful costumes. The group performs at the Tucson Meet Yourself to celebrate cultural diversity in southern Arizona; at local schools demonstrating Philippine folk dances; at community festivals, cultural organizations, corporate gatherings, and government agency programs to celebrate Asian-Pacific Heritage month. The group also participates and assists other non-profit organizations with their fund-raising events. One of the most fulfilling activities that the group does is providing joy and love to the elderly and ill at senior and convalescent centers with our visitation and caroling during the Christmas Season. The choral group with the rondalla, accepts invitations to your home to sing Christmas carols in the comfort of your living room.
