Last August 4, 2010, the Young Filipino Professionals Association held its “First Wednesdays” mixer at the Monkey Club in San Francisco. This month’s community partner is 600 lbs., which is an events and promotions company which combine the talents of Fil-Am professionals who’ve been in the business for years. Audie Vergara and Sione Tangen spoke on behalf of 600lbs. and they hoped to bring Filipino businesses to support each other to further empower the community economically and politically. 600 lbs. recently organized the Kababayan Fest events at California’s Great America in Santa Clara, California and Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, California.
