A Benefit Concert for Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) VictimsIn an effort to extend substantial aid to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda),   which brought wreak havoc to Central Philippines last November 8, 2013, we, the San Lorenzo Ruiz Choir of New York (SLRC) will hold a concert entitled “Awit ng Pasko”, that will benefit the families affected by the calamity. The concert will be held on December 7, 2013, 7 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Church Yorkville, 404 E. 87th St. (between York Ave and 1st Ave), New York, NY. Net proceeds from this concert will go directly to the Calamity Assistance and Relief Endeavors (CARE) program of Feed the Hungry Philippines for Typhoon Haiayan (Yolanda) victims. We are hopeful that the aid we will extend will go a long way in providing relief to the victims.  As most of us know, the country has suffered a death toll of over 10,000 and damaged properties worth billions of dollars. Amid the carnage, hundreds of thousands of survivors are trying to cope with the lack of water, food, shelter and medicine, and are in dire need of our help. In this regard, we invite you to be part of our cause.
