We received such tremendous and overwhelming response from the many wonderful artists in California, some traveling from as far as San Francisco, just to join this cause. The challenge now is to make sure the people come — to support the artists, support the charity organizations, and join the massive call for help through “Handog sa Bayan.” Donations (Online, Checks or In-Kind) to the above foundation groups will be received and acknowledgment receipts shall be issued. A tally of collected funds will be announced at the end of the concert.
