“To our overseas friends I’m knocking on your kind hearts to help our kababayans rehabilitate our devastated province immediately. Please note that I’m not a politician nor do I have future plans to become one. I am just a fellow Marinduqueña using what little voice I have in order to reach out so that we could all do our part to help out” said Lyna Larcia Calvario, CEO & Event Planner and Designer of KasalNY Weddings & Events. KasalNY which has been named “Top Wedding Planner in New York” by The Knot magazine for four consecutive years: 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Lyna and her love for children and community
Helping the poor and needy is not new for Lyna. In previous years, she were able to organize some projects that benefit her fellow kababayan especially the children. Just last December 20 through the help of volunteers and trusted vendors & suppliers, Calvario recently concluded an outreach program for indigent kids in the towns of Boac and Mogpog, Marinduque. She was able to raise a total of $500.00 or more than Php 22,500.00 by selling heart of gold Marinduque T-shirts.
Further, when typhoon Haiyan known as super typhoon Yolanda hit the Philippines on November 2013, Lyna also initiated a fundraising campaign to benefit the victims of the intense tropical cyclone wherein she acquired $2,250.00 or equivalent to more than Php 101,250.00 which she directly donated the whole proceeds to Sagip-Kapamilya, an ABS-CBN foundation.
