We are also still taking online donations! While all ticket sales benefit the medical mission and recovery efforts in Tacloban, there is still the matter of purchasing supplies and food for the volunteers. Volunteers pay their own way to fly to the Philippines. If you cannot make it on the 25th but would still like to help, please click here to donate online. Maraming salamat!

Please check back often for details on each of the acts: RSVP on our event page! See you on the 25th!
