“Tara’s Theme: Music, Friendship and Love” has been rescheduled to 28 November 2009, Saturday, 7:00 p.m. at Meralco Theater.

Below is an e-mail message sent by Larry and Anne Santelices, Tara’s parents:

Hi everybody,

The new date for the benefit concert is November 28, Saturday. Still at Meralco Theater, 7:00 p.m.

We are thankful to the management of the theater to have gone out of its way to get in touch (when everybody was reeling from the disaster) with those who made reservations to get the confirmation if they will push thru or not. We were lucky that that date became available.

We apologize for the inconvenience the postponement may have caused you or your friends.

We hope that you can help us spread the word about the change in schedule. If you have sent out posters or e-mails, please update these with the new date.

Thank you very much!
