MassKara originally began as a celebration of the ability to triumph over adversity. In the spirit of the event, PALS presents: MASSKARA, a masquerade party. MassKara represents one last chance to kick back and party before exams raise their ugly heads.

There’s going to be great music, drink specials, and… MASKS.  Any party that involves anonymity has to be off the hook.  Remember, pre-sale tickets get a discount, and the first 50 ticket buyers get a free mask. But if you’re feeling creative, feel free to design your own and enter the competition for BEST MASK.  Not only will there be awesome prizes, you’ll also get bragging rights and the adoration of your fellow partygoers.  MassKara is NOT limited to Hastings Students.  So invite all your friends, mask up, and get ready to party.  Here are the details:

PALS presents: 3rd Annual MassKara Party

Friday, March 18

$5 Pre-Sale, $7 at the door

Location: TBD

Proceeds to benefit Pil-Grad

Historical Note: The original MassKara festival began in 1980 during a period of crisis. Sugar, the province’s  primary agricultural crop was at an all-time low due to the introduction of sugar substitutes like high fructose corn syrup in the United States. On top of economic woes, personal tragedy affected the region when the inter-island vessel Don Juan collided with the tanker Tacloban City and sank. An estimated 700 lives were lost.

In the midst of these tragic events, the city’s artists, local government and civic groups reasoned that a festival would be a good opportunity to pull the residents from the pervasive gloomy atmosphere. The initial MassKara festival was therefore a declaration by the people of Bacolod City that no matter how tough and bad the times were, its citizes would not only survive, but also triumph.

Hey PALS. Right around now that euphoria is setting in, what with spring break in progress. The exhilaration of seeing a whole week standing between us and 198 could make anyone forget that more is waiting just around the corner. There’s going to be a lot of bummed out students on Sunday as the reality of class strikes home.

Luckily we won’t be among them. Because we have something they don’t have. A bunch of PALS to make that transition into school a little less painful. That’s right, PALS has another General Meeting on TUESDAY March 15. At NOON, in room B.

This is an important one, this is ELECTIONS. Please come by, represent PALS, and help select next year’s Executive Board. We’ll also be giving the low down on PALS’ spring party: MASSKARA. Last year’s Masskara event was a huge success, and judging by how awesome this year’s PALS have been, the third annual Masskara will be even better.

So come get some munchies, participate in the democratic process, and tell us how awesome your spring break was. And get your free hugs.
