XYIENCE Joins UFC Athlete in Fundraiser for Typhoon Survivors

LAS VEGAS (Jan. 2, 2014) - XYIENCE Xenergy, the official energy drink of the UFC®, announces that XYIENCE team athlete Mark “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” Muñoz is holding a fundraiser for the survivors of Typhoon Yolanda.  The MMA Wrestling Seminar & Fundraiser will take place on Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014 at Treasure Island Event Venue in San Francisco (401 California Avenue). The event is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and includes an autograph signing with the UFC middleweight.

The fee is $80 for the MMA wrestling seminar that will be held from 9 to 11 a.m.  A second wrestling seminar geared toward youth and college students costs $40 and will run from 1 to 4 p.m.  A free autograph signing with Muñoz will take place from noon to 1 p.m.  Participants can register at the event or in advance at   www.markmunozmma.com.

After watching the shocking news coverage of Typhoon Yolanda, Muñoz was inspired to take action to help survivors. “My family is from another island in the Philippines and was spared, which is why I feel even more compelled to do something for those in the Visayas region who were not so lucky,” said Munoz who has a long history of charitable endeavors. “UNICEF reports that 15 million people were affected by Typhoon Yolanda and 4 million are still homeless. My hope is that the community will support this event and extend help to those who are in need.” Muñoz notes that the rebuilding period is anticipated to take about three years. “Recovery from typhoon Yolanda is on-going, this holiday season I am giving to the survivors. You can too,” he said.

XYIENCE is very proud to be affiliated with Mark Munoz and to particpate in his fundraising event.”
