The BAHAla na Tribe along with FYP, the Krackernuttz and friends is hosting an all-ages, community event/fundraiser to benefit Sendong flood victims in the Philippines.
In the Filipino language Tagalog, the word "baha" means flood, "la na" is Tagalog slang for "no more". The word "bahalana" means "leave it up to God".
Tropical Storm “Washi” aka “Sendong” devastated the southern part of the Philippines about a week before Christmas on December 16, 2011 leaving a ravaged trail of at least 1,268 dead; over 6,071 injured with hundreds still missing and affecting over a million people according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Managment Council of the Philippines. This storm is considered to be the deadliest and most destructive in history for the southern region of the Philippines and its death toll has surpassed that of Typhoon “Ketsana” aka Typhoon “Ondoy” in 2009.
When we heard this news, we were compelled to help the victims. The original "Adobo Hoedown" in 2009 raised over $16,671 plus several other donations to benefit the victims of Typhoon "Ketsana" aka "Ondoy". The devastating news of this recent storm garnered the support of doing another "Adobo Hoedown" to benefit the victims.
The BAHAla na Tribe, friends, family and supporters have all united to to bring another fun and exciting event to raise money to send directly to the Rotary Club of Cagayan De Oro.
Our community has already collected over 150 boxes of goods and used clothing to be shipped to the Philippines, thanks to our local Filipino restaurants and businesses such as Houston Helping CDO and Pinoy Kargo.
We specially invite you and hope you can join us on this special day to enjoy the Filipino culture as we also help those less fortunate.
