LINGAYEN--- The Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan headed by Archbishop Socrates Villegas led the concert-for-a-cause dubbed as “Fadz Gold Live in Concert” to help the victims of Typhoon “Yolanda” in Visayas Region.
Held last November 12 at the CSI Stadia in Dagupan City, the live concert was joined by Gov. Amado T. Espino, Jr and Vice Gov. Jose Ferdinand Calimlim, Jr. where they rendered a song “PagibigKo Sa Iyo and “I Love You” respectively.
Ryan Cayabyab, a Pangasinense and the Philippines’ music icon also guested in the concert.
Likewise, the Catholic priests including nuns have shared their talents in singing and dancing to show their support to the project.
Arch. Villegas said the proceeds will be donated to the Archdiocese of Palo in Leyte and Archdiocese of Borongan in Samar whose churches have been ruined by typhoon “Yolanda.” The typhoon was considered as the world’s strongest and fiercest typhoon ever happened in the history of mankind.
“Gusto natin tulungan ang mga nabiktimang bagyong “Yolanda” at iyong mga nasirang simbahan natin doon,” Archbishop Villegas said.
More than thousands of students from the different Catholic schools have shown their full support to the concert that lasted for more than one hour.
Earlier, the province of Pangasinan has donated P2-million each for the Leyte province and Tacloban City. The Bohol province, which was recently hit by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake last October 15, likewise, received P2-million as donation from the province. (Merly R. Tibalao/PIO)
