Fundraiser for Haiti!

WE ARE THE DIFFERENCE: REBUILDING HAITI
A Red Carpet Fundraiser

When:
Saturday March 13th, 2010
6PM-11PM

Where:
District
2473 18th Street, NW
Washington, DC 20009

Because the arts are a prominent part of Haitian culture, the event will include a musical performance, a fashion show and live painting component.

Hosted by actor Leo Breckenridge from the award winning short "U Street DC", the evening will center around the musical performance of singer/songwriter Ayanna Gregory, who has shared the stage with icons such as Maya Angelou, the Last Poets, Bill Cosby, Stevie Wonder, Dick Gregory, Isaac Hayes, Will Downing, Lou Donaldson, Jennifer Holiday, Amiri Baraka, and Sonia Sanchez. Witness live paintings by artists Rachel and Rebecca Crouch and Charles Jean-Pierre and enter the silent auction for a chance to take home original pieces. Finally, enjoy a taste of the runway with a fashion show featuring the most recent collections of designers featured in Vogue Media.

ALL proceeds will go to Partners In Health (PIH). The organization was founded by Paul Farmer - anthropologist and ethnographer - who has done extensive work in Haiti and regarding biomedicine. PIH is focused on providing health care to the most disenfranchised communities and is actively involved in the rebuilding efforts. Go here to learn more about PIH.

Tickets begin at $20 and must be purchased in advance, HERE.
