A fund-raising concert for the Noynoy Aquino - Mar Roxas tandem was held last night at the UP Theater in UP Diliman, Quezon City. The concert was topbilled by the Apo Hiking Society. Noynoy and Mar even joined the concert performers in singing the tune that now bears their names.
Instead of buying tickets, supporters of the Noynoy-Mar ticket gave donations which were received by volunteers.
Shalani Soledad, girlfriend of Senator Noynoy Aquino, was present and sat beside the senator during the concert.
Earlier in the day at the Club Filipino in Greenhills, I was there when media people asked Noynoy why Shalani wasn't there and he responded by saying that he did not want to bother Shalani who has her own preparations to make for her own political run in Valenzuela City in 2010. GMANews.tv has an article on why Shalani and Korina were not present at the Liberal Party's big day.
