October 2015 was a memorable month of “firsts” for TFC in North America, highlighted by two giant events held only a week apart: the unforgettable, action-packed and world-class boxing matches of Philippines vs the World at StubHub Center on October 17, a partnership among ABS-CBN Sports + Action, ALA International and TFC, featuring Filipino boxing champions Donnie “Ahas” Nietes, Albert “Prince” Pagara, Mark “Magnifico” Magsayo, and Jason “El Nino” Pagara from ALA International and US-based champion Bruno Escalante; and the One Kapamilya Go in Oracle Arena on October 25 with the cast of the top-rated teleserye, Pangako Sa ‘Yo – Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, Jodi Sta Maria, Angelica Panganiban, Ian Veneracion, Thou “Takong” Reyes and DJ JhaiHo “Coring” with internationally renowned singers, Charice, Erik Santos and Morissette.
“People have already seen all the celebrity and VIP photos on traditional and social media for our October events, especially for One Kapamilya Go. This time, we want to cast the spotlight on the fans so everyone can see their engagement, interaction, and most importantly, their joy from attending and participating in TFC events. At the same time, we want to pay tribute to our Filipino boxing champions from ALA International who made their very successful debut in the U.S. via Philippines vs The World,” said ABS-CBN North America Head of Ad Sales, Events & Trade Marketing Ricky Resurreccion.
Of course, one can’t forget the continuing TFC Sama Saya even at the onset of Fall with several events held in New Jersey, Las Vegas, Nevada and Milpitas, California.
