Los Angeles-based marketing and fundraising professional Mic Diaz launched Mic Diaz Presents, a production company that strives to promote Filipino-American performing arts and its practitioners, as well as business owners, community partners and individuals, and to uplift our Filipino-American community through entertaining educational and engaging programs. Mic Diaz Presents delivers creative content that spreads the word about our community—their story, their brand and their business—through its various programs. Mic Diaz Presents produces in-person and virtual events such as concerts, podcasts, virtual markets, interviews and business spotlight interviews under the name Mic Diaz Presents.
In 2021, in the middle of the pandemic, Mic Diaz offered virtual classes as a way to engage the members of the most active Fil-Am Facebook group in SoCal. What started as weekly virtual lectures taught by various subject matter experts along with business spotlight interviews gradually blossomed into full-fledged weekly group interview panel podcasts featuring members from various sectors of the Filipino-American community on Thursdays as well as a virtual concert series on Fridays. Mic Diaz Presents is now producing live in-person concerts that feature artists, musicians, vocalists and entertainers from our community.
A visual artist and longtime arts advocate, Mic Diaz recently joined the Board of Directors of FilAm Arts, a local nonprofit organization in Southern California that brings people and communities together through the power of Filipino-American arts and culture. Prior to her recent activities in the Filipino-American community, award-winning project manager Mic began her professional career at one of L.A.’s premier presenters of performing arts in marketing and artist/guest relations roles. She has been in advertising and marketing roles in both public and private sectors.
This fundraiser event is presented by the following sponsors: The Noypitz DTLA, Arrow Smile Dental, a practice of Victor M. Rosales, D.D.S., State Farm Insurance, CodeMasters and AMP Staffing Network.
The Summer Night Party is free to attend between 6 p.m. to12 midnight.
