Philippine Red Cross fundraiser BBQ
A BBQ cookout was held on November 20th on Kadena Air Base to raise money for the Philippine Red Cross. The event was hosted by Title II (Quality Assurance) teams from AECOM Technology Corporation, Oneida Total Integrated Enterprises (OTIE) and Robinson Housing, with assistance from Nishimatsu Construction Co. Grilled hamburgers and hot dogs were served to all comers who donated to the cause.
Approximately 100 people attended the event, including Filipino, Japanese and American citizens. All enjoyed the fine weather and opportunity to help the Philippines in the time of need. The event raised $1,302, which was given to the Kadena branch of the American Red Cross on Tuesday, November 26th. Kadena Red Cross station manager Gerry Baily accepted the donation on behalf of American Red Cross, who will send the money to the Philippine Red Cross to aid in disaster relief efforts in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan.
The organizers of the event would like to thank all those who attended and donated for their kindness.
