David Pomeranz in benefit concert for ‘Yolanda’ victims
MANILA, Philippines—American singer-songwriter David Pomeranz is set to hold a benefit concert at the Rizal Park Friday evening for the victims of Supertyphoon “Yolanda” (Haiyan).
In an interview over Inquirer Radio 990AM, Kenneth Montegrande, National Parks and Development Committee spokesman, said Pomeranz’s concert will be held at the Open Air Auditorium at the Rizal Park at 6 p.m.
“This is a free concert. Everyone is welcome. We encourage the public to bring their whole family to watch David Pomeranz,” Montegrande said, as he appealed to the public for donations for typhoon victims in Leyte and Samar.
While any kind of donation will be greatly appreciated, Montegrande said cash contributions would be better as they are likely to spend more in transporting in-kind donations.
“Any amount will do,” he said. “It will surely make them happy this Christmas.”
He said six donation boxes would be placed at the concert grounds where the public may drop in their donations. Uniformed NPDC personnel will be deployed to assist concert-goers.
Montegrande said traffic within the vicinity of the Rizal Park will not be affected as the concert will be held inside the park.
