Randy Gener Inducted into the Filipino-American Hall of Fame 2008

CHICAGO: We are delighted to announce that the search committee of the fifteenth annual Chicago Filipino American Hall of Fame 2008 has selected Mr. RANDY GENER to be one of the recipients of this very prestigious award in the Filipino American community of Chicago and the Midwest for his outstanding contributions in Journalism and Theatre Arts categories.

The Chicago Filipino American Hall of Fame is an inspiring project that highlights the best in the Filipino and Filipino-Americans -- a joint effort of the 20-year-old Chicago Philippine Reports TV and the 25-year-old VIA Times Newsmagazine -- an outstanding annual community event that benefits a locally produced (and original) television show in Chicago, the CPRTV. This event's other charitable recipients include the TAHANAN Philippine Museum, the Bantay Bata Foundation for homeless children of the Philippines, and the Pilipino American Social Service for Seniors.

It honors high-achieving Filipinos/Filipino Americans/& Friends, focusing on their achievements in their own field of interest or profession, and in their abilities and capabilities to promote the positive image of the Filipino not only in Chicago, but also in the entire United States of America, the Philippines, and throughout the world.

These hall of fame inductees have demonstrated uncommon, innovative, and civic responsibility, and have excelled and achieved so much for the encouragement and betterment of the Filipino/Filipino American community. They are indeed a pride to the Filipino and Asian American communities, and have served as an inspiration and role model to our people.

We salute them and their accomplishments at a black-tie dinner-dance event to be held on Saturday, December 27, 2008 at the Regency Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Chicago Downtown, Chicago, IL, 151 E. Wacker Dr., Chicago, IL. 60601.

Sincerely yours,
