Glendale, CA – One of the most rewarding  assignments Miss Philippines USA organization had done this year was participating in the recently concluded LA telethon spearheaded by Fil-Am anchor Cher Calvin  of KTLA 5 and supported by Miss Philippines USA producer Lou Razon  and colleagues. The delegates offered their time to help raise funds for the American Red Cross to donate to the typhoon victims of Haiyan in the Philippines.

The three-hour telethon had tremendous support from celebrities like Billy Ray Cyrus,  spokesperson of American Red Cross, Mark Dacascos, AJ Rafael, Pau Gasol, Manny Pacquiao, the Basco Brothers, Apl de Ap, Lea Salonga and many more.  Phone lines had been ringing and donations had kept coming in from generous viewers and more than $152,000 was raised by the end of the night.

Volunteer delegates were Holly Ann Olalia (Miss Philippines USA Tourism), Camille Teodoro (Miss Philippines USA-Ambassador), Jessica Lee(2nd runner-up) ,Jasmine Reyes (Miss Philippines USA-Unity),

Mishi Magno (Miss Photogenic), Alyssa Sweerman, Abigail Bustos, Jill Camantigue, Jayme Lenling and Bimbie Daine.    Our top 2 ambassadors Holly and Camille were given a chance to talk about their life experiences and thoughts about the typhoon on television being interviewed by Rick Chambers.
