Philippine Airlines (PAL) joins the alumni of the Philippine Women’s University (PWU) in the tri-states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut in celebrating their alma mater’s first 100 years.

PAL is donating a round-trip ticket to Manila to be raffled off at the PWU Centennial in NY, a gala event to be held at the Doubletree by Hilton in Newark at 7 p.m. on Oct. 12, 2019.

PWU Centennial in NY will celebrate the women leaders that PWU had nurtured in the past century at its various campuses in Manila, Quezon City, Davao and Iloilo, as well as the members of the Bayanihan, the Philippine Dance Company that have brought home much honor through their exemplary dance performances at various cities and capitals in the world.

The Gala aims to raise funds to empower Filipinas in service-oriented professions in the Philippines through a scholarship in higher education so that they can better serve their communities.

PWU Centennial in NY may have been organized for a good cause but it will also be a celebration — an evening of good dining, dance and music.

Tickets are still available for $75/person.
