Heart for Haiti Event Fundraiser
July 19, 2014, 6:00 PM - 11:45 PM

Venue: Blarney Event Center
Address: 601 Monroe Street

Event Website: raiseahome.weebly.com

Description: Heart for Haiti runs July 19th, from 6pm to midnight at the Blarney Event Center.

As of now it will showcase the talents of 20+ local artists and 6 musicians/bands. All the art is available for purchase (at low prices). There will be food, sponsored in part by Chipotle and Jimmy Johns, as well as a raffle prize drawing to win prizes, and gift cards, or even $100. There will also be a cash bar.

85% of the proceeds will directly benefit the "Foyer des enfants de las providence" - an orphanage in Haiti led by two woman with 30 girls and 2 boys. I make routine trips to Haiti (am going in Aug and Dec), and I held a fundraiser event last year called Night Out to Raise a Home, which benefited a construction project at the orphanage. I successfully raised $1,500. This year, however, all the proceeds go directly to meeting immediate needs at the orphanage such as food, clothing, supplies, medicine (some nasty mosquito virus is spreading and costs of medicine have skyrocketed), as well as school sponsorships.
