Artists came together Friday night to support relief efforts for victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan.

Over 100 local and international artists, illustrators, photographers and designers donated artwork for the silent auction.

Ryan Sanchez, the benefit's organizer, felt personally obligated to find a way to help victims after learning of the incredible devestation brought about by the super typhoon.

"Seeing my fellow countrymen and having talked with my parents and having relatives that were affected and friends' relatives that were affected by this, I thought I could make a difference, so why not," he said.  

All proceeds will be given to the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns to directly support relief efforts.
