Home for the Holla'Days 3 marks the return of the concert series to the Bay Area. With some new faces and a brand new concert format focused on musical narratives, this year's show is the perfect place for celebrating the holidays with music, art, and giving back. As always, 100% of the proceeds from the concert will be donated to charity. Holla'Days 3 will donate all funds raised to Aid To Children Without Parents (ACWP), an organization focused on saving children at risk of sexual trafficking. FEATURING: Magnetic North, Taiyo Na, Vudoo Soul, Sam Kang, Cynthia Lin, Rachel Lastimosa of Dirty Boots AND THE HOLLA'DAYS HOUSE BAND: Charles Kim, David Kong, Jaron Lum, Scooter Oyama, Abraham Kim, Jonathan Lee, Takenori Nishiuchi Home for the Holla’days was conceived in the Fall of 2009 by a group of young Asian-Americans who wanted to make a difference in the fight against human trafficking in Southeast Asia. Inspired by the work of Aid for Children Without Parents (ACWP) and by the activism of our parents’ generation, we wanted to make our mark, too, and contribute to the solution to this heart breaking problem. Our vision was to put on an incredible concert during the season of giving in order to gather the community in the Bay Area and raise money for the Saving Children in Crisis Program at ACWP. Since the inaugural concert, the group has launched 2 more follow up concerts - in NY and CA - and has raised over $40,000 for charity.
