FYP-DC Typhoon Haiyan Fundraising Event

Update: 11/22/2013

We are expecting a great crowd for tonight's event.  The RSVP list is at 150+.  So nice to see the Filipino community here in the DMV come together to help our family and friends back in the Philippines.  Here is a picture of the bands that will be sold this evening.  Make sure to pickup a few.

For those of you who will be attending your first event I look forward to meeting you.  Hopefully I'll be able to find you in the crowd of brown faces to introduce myself:-)  See you all tonight!!!

    So how exactly are we fundraising at this event? Are we meeting to organize a fundraiser?

      Hi Maria! Suggested donations are $10 at the door and all proceeds will go to Feed the Hungry Philippines.

      I think they are selling bracelets as well as taking donations at the door.

    Sounds like a great collaborative event. Hope you have a very good turnout. As a Filipina myself in business with my husband, we have an upcoming weekend of charity events on the 23rd & 24th. Check out the Fundraiser Dance Party and next day Zumba Fundraiser at www.dance911.com. God bless!

    Maria,

    I believe the organization will be asking for donations at the door. If you have any suggestions for another type of fundraising event please let me or any of the FYP leadership know. With all that happened in the PI organizing multiple events is worthwhile.
