EVENTS: Save the Date: 11/6 – THE AFTERMATH: Benefit Concert for Typhoon Victims in the Philippines


American Pinoy Organization of the Youth (APOY-HCCC)

Save the Date: 11/6 7pm @ Our Lady of Victories School

What: A benefit concert organized by American Pinoy Organization of the Youth-HCCC (APOY), a new and vibrant Filipino student club at Hudson County Community College, to raise funds for the victims of two of the strongest typhoon to hit the Philippines.

When: November 6, 2009 7:00pm – 12:00am
Where: Our Lady of Victories School 240 Ege Ave. Jersey City, NJ 07304

Why: Last Sept.26, Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana) hit the Philippines delivering a historic amount of rainfall never before seen in 42 years. Typhoon Ondoy delivered 410mm of rainfall (Katrina 350mm), submerging 85% of Metro Manila and 25 sorrounding provinces. Sept.28, Super Typhoon Pepeng (Parma) hit the northern part of the Philippines causing flash floods and landslides.

Caught off guard, the government under the Arroyo regime was exposed to be incapable of rescuing and protecting our countrymen. $800M of the Philippines’ emergency funds was put to waste on lavish dinners and massive junkets. Now the Filipino people is left on their own to save themselves.

That is why, we the Filipino youth has decided to come together and get our acts together to help our brothers and sisters back home. Because there is no one else left to help the people but the people themselves.
