Rocking for Hope

These past few days I've been attempting to celebrate my advanced age and the New Year with a little contemplative activity. One of the things I'm most proud of from 2007 was our planning and execution of a free, charity rock concert dubbed Rakaza!.

This event supported Childhope Asia Philippines where we raised money and in kind donations as well as exposed the charity to hundreds of Manila denizens — most of whom work in the the BPO world (we picked up over 1,000 names for our list).
Childhope Asia Philippines is a not-for-profit NGO operating in Metro Manila assisting over 1,500 street children annually through its Street Education Program.

A quick look at the rotating banner next to this post show some shots of the night's line-up that included Urbandub, Radio Active Sago Project, Sinosikat?, Spy, Iray, Epic, Badburn, Rubberpool, Funkarival, Brightclub, Valve8, Basilica, Oyatoya, and MOI. The event was hosted at the Decagon in Sliver City Mall, beautiful Pasig City (we were the second group to use the facility).

Skarlet hosted the affair and she rocked the house. Likewise, evening faves were Radio Active Sago Project (my favorite Manila band) and Sinosikat.
