Noche Buena is what we, Filipinos, call the night before Christmas. During this special time, families gather together to bond, eat together, and enjoy the holidays. Sadly, not everyone has the privilege of having a merry Christmas due to the overlapping devastating effects brought by the pandemic and consecutive typhoons this year. 

The UP Human Ecology Student Society (UP HESS), along with their partner organization, invites all individuals and organizations to their event entitled, “Noche Buena: A Benefit Concert for the Affected and Displaced During Typhoon Ulysses,” on December 12, Saturday at 5 PM. According to the organization, it will be the concluding event of their ongoing donation drive. The proceeds will be forwarded to UPLB Agapay, with a transparency report to be released afterwards. The said event will also showcase the different talents of local artists from Los Baños, Laguna.
