If Vienna, Austria has its Opera Ball, the An Taclobanon Association of Southern California has the Ms. An Maglipayon USA Night. This unique gathering that started in 1928 in Tacloban was adopted in Southern California in the early part of 1990. The then officers of the An Taclobanon Association of Southern California were in search of an activity around Christmas that could gather everyone and be in fellowship. Thus, the Miss An Maglipayon USA pageant was born.
Much like the tradition that it was adopting, the Miss An Maglipayon USA pageant was meant to be a fun gathering of Taclobanons. However, the An Taclobanon Association of Southern California also made it a fundraising event in support of the projects of the Association. It is not only an opportunity for the daughters of Taclobanons to showcase their talents but one that allows them to lend their support to worthy causes of the Association like the Medical Mission to Tacloban.
