Typhoon victims fundraiser tonight

The Utah Chinese Community is hosting a fundraiser tonight for the victims of a devastating Taiwan typhoon that left thousands homeless earlier this month.

On Aug. 8, the typhoon struck southern Taiwan, killing more than 500 people and leaving some 31,000 homeless. The damage totaled more than $1.5 billion.

The fundraiser and silent auction will take place at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center, 1355 W. 3100 South, from 5:30 to 9 p.m.
