NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) -- The Pinoy Relief Fund, Live Nation and Alvarez & Marsal announced that they will stage a benefit concert to raise funds to aid victims of Typhoon Haiyan on March 11th 2014 at the Theater at Madison Square Garden.
The concert will feature performances by Jennifer Hudson, Pentatonix, Plain White T’s, A Great Big World, Jessica Sanchez, DJ Poet Name Life, and Charice as well as special guest participation by Dr. Mehmet Oz, APL.De.Ap of the Black Eyed Peas, Dante Basco and EGOT award winning songwriter Robert Lopez & Kristen Anderson Lopez.
One hundred percent of the net profit from the benefit concert will be distributed to programs that benefit the victims of Typhoon Haiyan through the Pinoy Relief fund and go toward reaching the organization’s goal of $5 Million for Philippines relief.
“The Pinoy Relief Benefit Concert presents an important opportunity for us to come together to provide significant support to those devastated communities in the Philippines as they confront staggering short- and long-term issues,” said Tony Alvarez, Co-Chair of Pinoy Relief and Co-CEO of Alvarez & Marsal. “The communities affected are desperate to get back to their normal lives and become self-sufficient again. The funds raised will be instrumental in creating programs and grants to ensure that the victims of Haiyan receive housing, schooling, and get resources, like fishing boats, for their livelihood. We are honored to have our performers and special guests help raise awareness for our cause.” - Staff Writers
