HAIYAN FUNDRAISER

HAIYAN FUNDRAISER MUSIC & ARTS FAIR

Copernicus Center Chicago fundraiser

 

Typhoon Haiyan, known as Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines, was an exceptionally powerful tropical cyclone that devastated portions of Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines, in early November 2013.  The deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, it killed at least 6,166 people in that country alone.  Haiyan is also the strongest storm recorded at landfall, and unofficially the strongest typhoon ever recorded in terms of wind speed.

This link to UN-OCHA reflects the progress so far; and the work yet to be done to aid the 14 MILLION affected people. UN-OCHA – http://www.unocha.org/

Join artists and musicians in a good cause to aid Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) survivors!

A night of live entertainment from Chicago musicians, singers, dance crews, spoken word artists, comedians, and more!

There will be food booths, crafts, sketching, tattoo, martial arts workshops, photobooths, massages, a raffle with great prizes and a silent auction.

SUGGESTED MINIMUM DONATION of $15 at the door serves as your ticket to the event with access to all performances and booths.

Raffle tickets can be purchased for $5 per six tickets. The more tickets you buy, the more chances of winning prizes!

100% OF PROCEEDS will fund 2 medical missions to Tacloban and Paluan, Mindoro Occidental and the rebuilding of homes, a community center, a school, a baranggay hall in the communities of Tacloban, Marabut, Samar and Coron, Palawan.

(In the interest of transparency, we would like to put it on record that medical mission participants are flying to the Philippines at their own expense.)

This is a JOINT EFFORT with the Philippine American Cultural Foundation, a 501(c)3 not for profit organization based in Illinois, Chicago-based Filipino folk fusion band, SamaSama Project, led by Baron and Louella Cabalona, Ms. Girlie Pascual and Mr. James DeLaCruz and other key members of the Chicago Filipino American Community.
