When we heard about the recent Philippine floods leaving over 300,000+ people homeless we wanted do something locally to help. We’ve joined forces with a group of young Filipino Americans to form the BAHAla na Tribe and created an exciting and fun event to raise money and clothing to send to the American Red Cross for Philippines Typhoon Ketsana Relief Effort. We hope you can join us on this special day to enjoy the Filipino culture and help those less fortunate. We introduce, the H-Town Adobo Hoedown!
Be a part of a fun, cultural celebration in honor of Filipino American History Month while helping others in need. The H-Town Sneaker Summit will also be at the event accepting clothing and shoe donations.
