Local bands from Lapu-Lapu City donate their talent and time for “Hinatagay” a post-Christmas concert-for-a-cause
This musical and charity event is going to be held this December 26, from 6 pm – 2 am, at the park under the Marcelo B. Fernan bridge.
The concert will feature 10 homegrown bands: Cris Rocks, New Zion, Chisca, Flirt, Spiel, Nerve String, Stif, Infinity, Skul of Fish and Sound Merge.
European DJ Anne Anderson and Cebu’s hottest FM disc jockeys will also provide entertainment.
Concert-goers need not shell out money to watch the concert. They just have to bring three pieces of secondhand (but still usable and wearable) clothing as their entrance ticket. These will then be distributed by the City Social Welfare Office to the city’s urban poor after the event.
A wide screen will be mounted beside the stage to update the crowd with a tally of used clothing collected.
“Hinatagay” will kick off with “Batang Opon”, a feeding program for more than 100 children. Aside from enjoying the music and the thought of bringing a smile to someone’s face with the clothes that you share, other on-ground attractions will also be offered such as free wall climbing, paintball, longboard and rapelling.
This event is organized by the Lapu-Lapu City government’s tourism and sports council, with the support of San Miguel Corporation, Sangguniang Kabataan Federation (SKF) and the Youth Affairs Office (YAO).
