Kapamilya actress KC Concepcion’s humanitarian act got recognized at the 5th Outstanding Filipino Americans in New York (TOFA-NY) Awards as she received the Special Humanitarian Award at the Carnegie Hall in New York, yesterday, November 1.

KC, our country’s national ambassador against hunger of the United Nations’ World Food Programme, accepted the award wearing a Filpiniana dress made by the local designer Cary Santiago.

The 30-year-old actress then shared her “humbling, empowering, and inspiring” as an ambassador via Instagram (@thisiskcconcepcion).

“Thank you #TOFA for recognizing our efforts to fight for #ZeroHunger everyday of our lives. #AboutLa

“Studying in Boston for 7th grade, we took a field trip to New York by bus, 3 hours away. I remember seeing the U.N. Headquarters for the first time & seeing so many flags waving in thé air. I thought, one day, I'm coming back here. And exactly 10 years later, at 22, my dream came true through the U.N. World Food Programme (W.F.P.) to be surrounded by real-life heroes is humbling, empowering, inspiring. Thank you #TOFA for recognizing our efforts to fight for #ZeroHunger everyday of our lives. #AboutLastNight #GlobalFilipino #NYC @carysantiago,” she said.

The other 2015 TOFA-NY awardees are Katrina Saporsantos, John Gadia, Steven Raga, Mark Bustos, Dr. Kevin Nadal, Gail Banawis, Betina Ocampo, Nicole Ponseca, Dr. Richard Holsman, Chelle Lhuillier, Makilala TV, Commissioner Carmelyn Malalis, PAGASA Social Foundation, Inc, and Councilmember Jonathan Wong.
