SLU’s Filipino Student Association will hold a benefit concert in the Center for Global Citizenship on Dec. 2. Proceeds from the performance will be donated to support relief efforts for those affected by typhoon Haiyan, which devastated the Philippine islands on Nov. 8.

SLU’s office of international services and the Student Government Association will provide additional financial support, and the event will include performances from Bare Naked Statues, the Indian Student Association and the Interfaith Alliance, along with independent performances by members of the SLU and Washington University community. Various St. Louis community organizations have also offered support.

According to Garvaundo Hamilton, SGA’s VP of International Affairs, half of the proceeds will go to Philippine Red Cross. The other donation recipient has not been confirmed at the time of publication.
