If you're in New York City, join the newly launched Filipino American Museum (FAM) for a benefit to raise funds for Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts. FAM has rallied an impressive group of individuals, businesses, local government officials, and community organizations to create an evening celebration of the Bayanihan Spirit. It's happening Thursday, November 21 at the Galapagos Art Space in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
All proceeds will go to the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON) whose "Taskforce Haiyan" is a grassroots relief effort coordinated directly between Filipinos in the U.S and those in affected areas of the Philippines. Funds will be spent on food, water and medical supplies.
Here are some more details about the event:
