Faulkner said that Filipino food will be served including lumpia, roast pork with Filipino sauce, Filipino noodles, white rice, vegetables and Filipino desserts. Admission to the dinner/dance is $20 with all proceeds going toward typhoon victims.

Faulkner said the group is also collecting canned food, which can be dropped off at Marie’s Alterations at 13 Park Lane in Havelock. Monetary donations will also be accepted at Marie’s by owners Lydia and Pablo Gomez. Checks can be made out to Havelock Fil-Am Association.

“We’re going to be continuously raising funds for this because it’s going to take a long time for them to get on their feet,” Faulkner said. “More people are going on our list that this money is going to go to. There are 1.4 million people who are affected.”
