Celebrity Tributes for Philippine Typhoon Haiyan Victims is a fundraising event being organized by Simply the Best TV Show Host Luisa Marshall and her friends to help raise funds for the victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan which devastated central Philippines.

615,000 people were forced out of their homes and well over 10,000 are feared dead after what may be the strongest cyclone ever recorded.

Vancouver’s best Celebrity Tribute Artists will get together to help raise funds for the survivors of Philippine Typhoon Haiyan. It will feature Bobby Bruce as Nearly Neil (Neil Diamond Tribute), ABRA Cadabra (ABBA Tribute), Darren Lee (Elvis Presley Impersonator) and Luisa Marshall’s Tina Turner Tribute with the Luisa Marshall Band. The benefit show will be held at the Grand Taj Banquet Hall in Surrey, B.C. on Thursday, November 14, 2013. There will be a silent auction, 50-50 draw and much more.

This event is still being organized: the event details are subject to change; organizers are also promising additions to the programming.
