The BP Participates: ABC+ Benefit Gig






ABC+ is a humanistic gesture and a collaborative effort of PLUS, MCAP, Monkeyneering, KaEskwela and The BACKPACKERS aimed at raising funds, this time, for the flip flops of more than 270 schoolkids of Balagbag Elem. School, Rodriguez, Rizal, and for Hyacinth N. Cadiz of Silliman University, who has just had a kidney transplant worth P1.5Million courtesy of family and friends and still needs medication for her fast recovery. The event will be an art exhibit, benefit gig, and christmas party rolled into one in Bali Hai Garden Restaurant at 37 Visayas Ave., Bgy. Vasra, Quezon City, on December 9, 2012, Sunday, featuring visual arts, music of varied genres, dance, poetry, prose, etc. Half of the proceeds will go to the KaEskwela funds in case any of the KaE partners takes care of the flip flops of the schoolkids of Balagbag; the other half will be deposited to the bank account of Hya's brother or any of her immediate family.
