Typhoon Haiyan, known as Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines, was an exceptionally powerful tropical cyclone that devastated portions of Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines, on November 8, 2013. Merely four months after the record-breaking tragedy, the media hype is practically nonexistent, while survivors who lost almost everything are still struggling to get their lives back together. This lack of media attention necessitates a refresher—a reminder that the typhoon victims are still very much in need of our help.

We invite you to join us in honoring and remembering the victims of Typhoon Haiyan through AURORA—a study and exhibit of light as hope, energy, love and renewal.

100% of proceeds from donations and a silent auction will be directed to the non-profit and government-free fundraising effort co-founded by Dawn,
$10 suggested donation at the door — no one is turned away!

NOTE: Last minute call for contributions: if you want to participate let us know ASAP! Join this great crowd — see raffle / silent auction list.
