A benefit concert for the victims of the recent Mindanao earthquakes will be held in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental on Sunday, Dec. 15.

The benefit concert dubbed as “Sweet December Dream: Tabang sa Mindanao” is organized by DYWC 801 kHz TeleRadyo, the broadcast company of the diocese.

In October, Davao Archbishop Romulo Valles, president of the Catholic Bishop’s Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), appealed for aid for the victims.

Dumaguete Bishop Julito Cortes immediately responded to the CBCP’s appeal and called for donations across Siquijor and Negros Oriental. DYWC TeleRadyo responded through the benefit concert.

“It is our chance to help our brothers and sisters affected by the earthquake in Mindanao. They need all the help they can to start all over,” said Fr. Ramonito Maata, station manager of DYWC TeleRadyo.

Fr. Maata, head of the Diocesan Commission on Social Communications will perform with Our Lady of Pilar Parish Priest (Pamplona), Fr. Randy de los Santos as the “New Priest on the block.”

They will be joined by former Tawag Ng Tanghalan contestants Windimie Yntong of Siquijor, Jophil Cece, and John Mark Digamon of Cagayan de Oro, and Cebuana Girlie Las Piñas.

The benefit concert will be held at the Fr. Louis Chauvet Hall in St. Paul University Dumaguete.
