Looking west across Richmond Terrace at County Courthouse on a hazy late morning.

There are about 7,000 Filipinos living in Staten Island, New York and its community leaders have joined forces with the owners of the Hilton Garden Inn to hold a benefit event on January 15, 2014 to raise funds for the benefit of the victims of typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda. 100 percent of the proceeds from the free venue, food, beverages and service will go to the Archdiocese of New York’s “Relief from the Philippines” fund.

Various local celebrities will participate in the 7:00pm to 10:30pm Wednesday event. Tickets are priced at $75 for a buffet dinner and are sold at or call (718) 477-2400 ex. 5.
