Duluth's Filipino community gathered for a Christmas party Saturday.

The Filipino American Association puts on the party every year. Club President Lyndah Korpela said Saturday's party was a good chance for generations to come together.

"It's a good thing for our younger generation to keep up with our customs and traditions because they really don't know what's going on at home, but by doing this, the food and the entertainment brings them back home," Korpela said.

Korpela said the club will send almost all the money raised to relief efforts in the Philippines.
