A few colleagues and I decided to step up to the plate and give back to our family in Haiti. Please show support and forward this, even if you can not make it:
An earthquake centered near the impoverished Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince caused the collapse of several buildings and an unknown number of fatalities Tuesday. The quake measured 7.0 on the Richter scale and at least 1.8 million people live within the area where the earthquake had its highest intensity.
As we are looking to get together and make an impact, we decided to come together and host “Love Helps: Haitian Earthquake Relief Afterwork Fundraiser” so that we can donate ALL earnings to our families in HAITI, via Wyclef Jean’s YELEHAITI foundation. http://www.yele.org
It will be FREE entrance – however we will be collecting donations inside. Permissible donations include:
-Pre-paid cell phones (very useful to the folks in Haiti as they are looking for ways to replace lost communication)
DJ Vega Benetton (of Haitian descent) will be there spinning the best of hip hop, reggae & of course, KOMPA.
Shout out to Tuff City Styles.
A good time for a good cause.
We hope to see you there next wednesday & God bless.
