Very Barrio Krismas Party Parol Auction on Dec. 12th!

Parols at KapisananTake home a parol this holiday season! All parols are hand-made by Kapisanan community supporters!

Hey Friend of Kapisanan!

It's time to light up the holiday season with a handmade, one-of-a-kind KAPISANAN parol (Filipino Christmas lantern)!

Our incredible volunteers, board members, CLUTCH participants, staff and supporters have turned the basement into a parol super laboratory - cutting, taping, and glue-gunning fingertips to make over 50 parols for sale (only $30) in the VINTA gallery, open December 3 for our Krismas Bazaar!

But we have something special just for you...

Aside from being a great fiesta, this is a fundraiser for KAPISANAN, so that we can continue to deliver quality planning, programs and mentorship. We have a lot in store next year, and we will need everyone's support to make it all happen.

These super gorgeous artworks will start at a minimum bid of $80 but we expect that you'll be fighting over them so have your wallet at the ready!
