Help for Haiti, Family to Family, a Fundraiser

This Saturday, March 20th, from 5-8 pm Artists-at-Large is hosting a Haitian art and culture fundraiser that will benefit three local organizations: Partners in Health, bringing modern medical care to poor communities around the world, the Eritaj Foundation, providing technical assistance to Haiti-based non-profit organizations, and the Rotary Club of Braintree raising funds for ShelterBox USA, an international disaster relief charity that delivers emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to people affected by disaster worldwide. Artists-at-Large feels these organizations will provide disaster relief and help create the Haiti of tomorrow.

Help for Haiti, Family to Family will be held at the Hyde Park Municipal Building located at 1179 Hyde Park Avenue, between Cleary and Logan Squares. This event is for people of all ages to enjoy Haitian art and culture while donating to earthquake relief. The afternoon will feature singer Mirlande Butler with her son Bobby Butler at the piano, along with singer Jean Dauphin, storyteller, Charlot Lucien and his multitalented son Sebastien Lucien. Councilor Rob Consalvo will be present to address the crowd, plus there will be a silent auction of artwork created by members of the Haitian Artists Assembly of Massachusetts. Of the event Organizer Thomas Seggers says, "It is our hope that people will come away with a better sense of the beauty and cultural significance of Haiti, despite its recent disaster."
