We are hosting a fundraising drive to provide aid to the Philippines, which was hit by Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan, the strongest recorded typhoon to make landfall. 9.5 million people are affected, with approximately 250 casualties to date, a number which is projected to rise in the thousands.

We ask that you stop by Port-o Lounge this Thursday, 6pm-9pm, and write a check to American Red Cross, with memo designation of “Philippines Typhoon and Flood”. A representative from the American Red Cross will be available to accept donations.

A percentage of sales will be donated on behalf of Port-O Lounge’s patrons to the American Red Cross.

If you are unable to join, you can donate online or mail your check to the nearest American Red Cross. You can find that information at

No donation is too small. Thank you for your generosity.
