Typhoon Haiyan Relief Benefit Concert
Sunday, December 8, 2013
5:30-8:00 PM, Rockhurst High School - MAP

Earlier this month one of the strongest typhoons on record battered the central islands of the Philippines. "Haiyan" made landfall at Guiuan, and continued to plow through Tacloban, Ormoc, and throughout the Visayas. The now familiar numbers reported are staggering – sustained winds of 150 mph; waves as high as 15 ft; more than 5,000 confirmed dead; 4 million displaced; 12 million overall affected. The UN has remarked that the scale of destruction is unprecedented.

Show your support for those most in need! The Filipino Association, in cooperation with Rockhurst High School, will have a concert on December 8 at the Rose Theater in Rockhurst HS. This event benefits those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, and will feature performances by local artists and musicians. It is sure to be an entertaining and engaging program.

Admission is by donation only – one ticket will be issued per donation receipt.*  Suggested levels are $10, $25, and $50. Children 12 and under are free. Register below or at the door. Doors open at 5:30 PM.


*After completing your donation, print your receipt and bring it to the concert.
