Fundraisers benefit typhoon relief

From page A1 | November 21, 2013 |

Davis residents have two opportunities this weekend to help survivors of the devastating Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

The Davis-Yolo County Filipinos, under the leadership of former Davis Mayor Ruth Asmundson, are organizing a Filipino luncheon buffet from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, at the St. James Catholic Church Memorial Center, 1275 B St.

The luncheon is being arranged in cooperation with the city of Davis’ sister city of Los Baños in the Philippines. Tickets are $35 and are available at De Luna Jewelers, 521 Second St., and at the door. Checks may be made payable to the city of Davis (memo “Friends of Los Baños Committee”). Any donation beyond the $35 is welcome.

Those who cannot attend Saturday’s event but who would like to contribute may send a check to Typhoon Relief Fund, 545 Miller Drive, Davis, CA 95616.

“We are in contact with families in the Central Philippines who have lost their homes and livelihood, but are not located in the hardest-hit islands of Leyte and Samar that are already served by the big international relief agencies,” a news release from the group said. “The Filipinos in outlying areas also need help.”

The group is planning several fundraising events. All proceeds will go the Rotary Club of Makati in the Philippines for direct aid to victims of the typhoon. The goal is to rebuild local schools and houses on the outlying islands.

More more information or to arrange for someone to pick up a donation, contact Asmundson at 530-753-7884 or [email protected].

“Piercing for the Philippines,” an ear-piercing fundraiser, is planned for Friday and Saturday, Nov. 22-23, at De Luna Jewelers, 521 Second St. in downtown Davis.

A donation of at least $20 is requested. Participants will receive their choice of hypoallergenic earrings and antiseptic solution. Appointments are not necessary but they are appreciated. Call the store at 530-753-3351.
