FilAm Chamber of Commerce Hollywood held its first membership drive dinner at Barkada a fusion FilAm restaurant in the heart of Hollywood, California. The successful event was made possible with the tireless perseverance and leadership of it’s founding President Craig Obligacion Wilson and Edwin Santos.
Gracing the event were FilAm celebrities in the film industry hosted by double Emmy Award winner Jackie Fern.
Erick Esteban brought the house down with his stand up comedy performance and his joke was even subdued due to the presence of a minor 11 year old ventriloquist Shane Selloria in attendance who was also there to perform. The kid is definitely a pro showing he can perform with the grown ups.
The crowd in attendance was inspired, invigorated, and loved the narratives of how the underdogs like Reggie Lee were able to succeed in an industry that makes it difficult for minorities to excel or even get noticed.
2 time Emmy Award winner Marc Anthony Nicolas’ humble beginnings was truly inspirational who after so many rejections has finally landed his dream job working with Tyra Banks but has to leave to care for his dying mother. When her mother passed it took him 3 months to recover from his grief and here he is back in the industry creating more waves.
