Hope After Haiyan: A Filipino Fundraiser Dinner
Start Date: 2/1/2014Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 2/1/2014

Event Description:
Sponsored by i20, Student Activities and Advisor for International Students and Scholars, Hope After Haiyan: A Filipino Fundraiser Dinner will be held to raise funds for the survivors of the typhoon. Suggested donation is $10.

To support long-term rebuilding in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan, a Filipino fundraiser dinner will be held in the Friends Meeting House on Feb. 1 (Saturday). The dinner will feature a variety of classic Filipino favorites and desserts, including adobo, lumpiang shanghai, bistek Tagalog and palabok, from different regions of the country. In true Pinoy style, you will be encouraged to eat kamayan-style, aka with your hands. 

Proceeds will be split between Dakila, a Filipino youth advocacy/empowerment group, and Operation Airdrop, a voluntary helicopter operations team dropping off relief goods in isolated villages. Both groups are focusing on affected provinces that haven’t received as much media attention as other parts of central Philippines. 

To participate, please email in advance your donation receipt to me ( or Jennifer Gold (, or present us with a print copy on the evening of the dinner. (For the Dakila donation page, please click here. You can donate to Operation Airdrop on their main page.)

(For a primer on Filipino food, Jun-Blog’s glossary provides an excellent summary of what Zagat deems one of the most “exciting emerging cuisines” in America!)
