Our Purpose - As reflected in our BBC Purpose statement – “Visayans around the world will be united by a common purpose – to enhance and expand our identity through networking” – our website is committed to leveraging a unique and virtual role of our services to fellow Visayans and positively contributes to a better understanding of identity and culture. In so doing, we are celebrating the annual picnic event to increase and service a growing Bisaya population not only concentrating our location here in Southern California but creating a virtual presence intended to service and connect Visayans throughout the globe.
We at BBC, together with our growing contributors embrace this responsibility highlighted in our 2nd annual Bisaya Picnic this coming May 31st. At the same time, we are pleased to announce that we are launching our first charitable event, our 1st BBC Annual Golf Tournament that underscores our commitment to support the street children of Cebu City through the efforts of Sr. Marcia of the Good Shepherd Convent. Our terrific examples of working our sustainability in achieving our goals: 1 – Successful Book Launching Event of Cebu Beach Houses in the heart of Historic Filipino Town; 2 – Solicit advertisements; 3 – Create the Tabuan Market Place to generate sales in conjunction with our increasing network of providers; 4 – Lastly, increase our sponsorship to contribute to sustainability of BBC through your donations, AD placements, and purchase items in Tabuan Marketplace.
