The Golden State Warriors are hosting their annual Filipino Heritage Night on Saturday against the Jazz, and joining the combined effort to aid victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan, which has claimed 3,600 lives in the Philippines this month.

Fans interested in aiding victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan are encouraged to donate to Red Cross representatives at Oracle Arena on the concourse level and at the East, North, South, Plaza, F-Lot and Valet entrances. Fans are also encouraged to text RELIEF to 864233 to donate $10 to UNICEF USA to help support UNICEF’s efforts in the region.

The Warriors will also sell an adidas Filipino Heritage t-shirt as the item of the game and on WarriorsTeamStore.com, where 10% of every purchase of the adidas Filipino Heritage t-shirt will support Doctors Without Borders, helping people affected by the typhoon.

Filipino Heritage Night festivities on Saturday include a pregame martial arts demonstration by the Eskabo Daan club of San Francisco as well as halftime music and dance performances by the American Center of Philippine Arts. 

Tickets for Saturday’s Filipino Heritage Night are sold out, but tickets are available for a second Filipino Heritage Night on Friday, March 7, 2014 against the Atlanta Hawks.
