Sunga Orthodontics is the FALEO San Diego 2013 business of the year.


Back in February we were honored to learn that we were chosen by the Filipino-American Law Enforcement Organization as their 2013 Business of the year.  We were presented the award at FALEO's 2nd annual membership and scholarship dinner on Friday, February 28th.   The event began at 5PM.  Johnathan headed to the event first with Dr. Sunga and myself (Mae) heading over after the last patient of the day.  Unfortunately we didn't end up making it to the event until after the award presentation so Johnathan accepted the award for us.  It was a great event hosted by 10 News reporter Melissa Mecija and entertainment from the PASACAT dance company.

We became involved with FALEO-SD last year.  FALEO-SD is a non-profit organization comprised mostly of active and retired law enforcement personnel.  FALEO-SD seeks to promote fraternal relationships and cultural awareness among all law enforcement and the communities they serve and protect.  We were introduced to the organization through our cousin Reginald Garcia from Comerica Bank who had just become a member of FALEO. He told us that he joined this organization and thought it was something that we would love to be involved with and support.  He was right.  As a local small business in the South Bay, we strive to support our local organizations, especially those like FALEO-SD that share our same values with regard to strengthening our San Diego community and fostering a family-like support system in both our professional and personal relationships.  FALEO-SD is a great organization headed by awesome people.  They hold awesome events throughout the year.   Just to name a few they held a fundraiser for victims of Typhoon Haiyan and a 5K to help raise health awareness.

We love working with FALEO-SD.  Everyone that we've met through the organization have been wonderful.  Thanks again to the folks at FALEO-SD for the honor and recognition!
