Para Kay Toto

Top–billed SIDE A Band rendered a benefit concert last December 1, 2012 at the University of St. La Salle Coliseum, Bacolod City embracing its national campaign “Para Kay Toto“(Toto is a common nickname among Ilonggo kids).  The campaign was set on stage as an advocate in promoting awareness to free children from the abused world.  Tapulanga Foundation was one of its beneficiaries, together with the Real Life Foundation, Kalipay Negrense and Bantay Bata 163.

The event was founded by Mr. Joey Benin, a former SIDE A band member, and his wife, Bing Ledesma-Benin, who is from Negros, and organized by the Para Sa Kabataang Pilipino Movement whose vision is to help children and participated by various celebrities.

Some of the teachers and staff of St. Francis of Assisi School of Silay City set aside their school works and proudly delivered their spirit of volunteerism during the said concert. It was reunited by more than 100 volunteers from different sectors to give free service to Para Kay Toto.

SFAS students-scholars joined and sang on stage with the SIDE A Band during the finale and they gave out thank you cards to the audience.

Thank you to all who came and had a great time singing old and new time hits and at the same time, being a part of providing children with a brighter tomorrow!
