Members of community groups, Artists & Linked Friends in Action (ALFA), and Iliganons & Lanaonons In Sydney, Australia (ILISA, Inc), met last Saturday the seventh of July 2012. ALFA handed over to ILISA, Inc a couple of cheques for $13600 dollars.
ALFA, a gathering of multi-cultural musicians and their print and radio broadcast friends, banded together earlier this year to produce a music CD. The CD was to raise funds to go towards relief efforts for survivors of tropical storm Washi/Sendong which demolished parts of the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan City in Mindanao, Southern Philippines mid December last year.
The CD entitled, “ONE – Our New Era” comprising of 15 original songs, sold 500 copies in two sold-out CD launches. The songs are also available online via www.beaufunkcious.bandcamp.com.
