Hit by the strongest and deadliest of storms, the Philippines faces one of the largest humanitarian disasters in recent memory. Super Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda has killed approximately 4000 people and displaced millions of others, leaving truly immense destruction and devastation in its wake.
Join me at 7 p.m. next Tuesday, November 26 for a trivia night fundraiser to support the disaster relief effort in the Philippines.
It's only $5 to compete and Pour Girl is generously donating 10% of all sales on food and beverages. All proceeds will go to Gawad Kalinga, a Filipino non-governmental organization, to support the rebuilding and reconstruction process. GK is on the ground rehabilitating damaged homes and relieving crowded evacuation centres in affected areas.
RSVP on Facebook and get ready to put your thinking caps on! It'll be a night of nerdy goodness!
A huge thank you to everyone who came out to play some pretty intense trivia to support this important cause. We raised $510 in a single night, which will be doubled by the Canadian government bringing our donation to Gawad Kaling up to $1020! What an incredible turnout!
Special shoutouts go out to Pour Girl Bar and Restaurant for donating 10% of all sales on food and beverages as well as Lamesa Filipino Kitchen and Steam Whistle Brewery for donating raffle and trivia prizes.
