The PNR is a project of the PNR task force comprising of representatives of the
Philippine American Medical Society of Western Pennsylvania (PAMS)
Philippine American Performing Arts of the Greater Pittsburgh (PAPAGP)
The FAAP initiated and organized the PNR project, provided the funds, and remains committed to completing the project.
The benefit concert is the task force's third fund raising event this year. The plan is to complete the PNR project in 2017. The university has approved the room design, which is based on the Bahay na Bato architecture. The task force now awaits the final Architectural drawings from its Architect-of-Record.
