Group raises funds for those affected by Typhoon

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A local group organized a concert in order to raise money for those affected by the Typhoon in the Philippines.

The Filipino American Community of the Carolinas says they originally planned the event to help people devastated by the earthquake that hit the Philippines.

Due to the recent typhoon, the group says they are raising money for both causes.

Several musical acts played and members of the community came out to show their support.
