Uniting the community to focus on the continuing dire emergency needs in Haiti
and to raise funds for local grassroots rebuilding efforts in Haiti
“Many Haitians are still in need -- desperate need in some cases, of shelter and food and medicine.And with the spring rains approaching, those needs will only grow.The challenge now is to prevent a second disaster”--- Barack Obama, March 12, 2010
Two months following January's 7.0 earthquake, the situation for many remains dire, 1.1 to 1.5 million people lack permenant shelter and millions more lack access to proper sanitation, clean water and food.
Further, the assistance that is currently being distributed is being delivered to large-scale camps rather than small isolated areas where hundreds are still awaiting assistance.
The intention of this event is to donate proceeds to organizations funding local grassroots rebuilding efforts in Haiti.
Onyx Community Connection, in collaboration with community organizers, will be hosting "A Night in the Fillmore-A Haiti Benefit"
The Night Event will feature:
- live music performances and DJ
- a swing dance lesson and dance performances
- an art auction
Suggested Donation: $25 in advance, $35 at the door
