    Two evenings of wholesome entertainment for Haiyan survivors

    It seems that the legendary short memories of most of us have already driven out of mind the immense devastation in southern Philippines left by Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded. Fortunately there are a few who care enough to remember that it's still a crisis out there where Yolanda made landfall last November 8 relegating thousands of survivors mired in misery. They all need our help.

    Ted Benito of PAE Live will host Rebuild Philippines! The L.A. Concert at The Greek Theater (Griffith Park 2700 N Vermont Ave., Los Angeles 90027) on Sunday, June 8, starting at 6 pm. Proceeds will assist the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan, said Benito. Among the performers will be Apl.de.Ap, will.i.am and Taboo (Black Eyed Peas).

    On the other hand, President Thelma P. Calabio and the other officers and members of the Filipino American Press Club of California appeal to the goodness of everyone to extend whatever kindness and love and charity for our brothers and sisters in need by enjoying a June 1 evening of star-studded wholesome entertainment at the Celebrity Centre International (5930 Franklin Ave., Hollywood 90028).

    Show director and overall chairman is Isidric M. Panganiban and program hosts will be Michael Walker and Yvee Tadeo-Guevarra.
