Galfand Berger supports the heritage and culture of the communities we serve. One example is the firm’s support of the Mexican Consulate in Philadelphia, and the Mexican Cultural Center’s annual Mexican Independence Day Festival on September 14, 2014 at Penn’s Landing. The festival celebrates Mexican Independence, and Mexico’s cultural and artistic diversity. The event is part of PECO’s Multicultural Festival Series.
The Mexican Cultural Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and encouraging a better understanding of Mexico and Mexican culture. It works to cultivate and preserve Mexican traditions in the Delaware Valley for residents of Mexican descent, and those of diverse nationalities. This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Mexican Culture Center. To learn more about this organization, visit its webpage: http://www.mexicanculturalcenter.org/.
