10/9 Haiti Earthquake Anniversary Benefit

Haiti Earthquake Anniversary Benefit
A Night in Solidarity and Celebration with the Haitian Community


SAVE THE DATE January 9th 4pm to 10pm -- Main Event: 6pm--7pm

Waid’s Haitian Cuisine and Lounge
1212 E. Jefferson St., Seattle, 98122

On the 12th of January 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake devastated Haiti. The catastrophe left nearly 300,000 dead and more than 1 million are still homeless today. The displaced citizens of Haiti are now dealing with a cholera outbreak that is running rampant through the tent cities of Port-au-Prince, compounding the initial tragedy of the earthquake.

Maha-Lilo (or Many Hands, Light Load) is a Seattle based non-profit organization under Haitian leadership that is working to bring water filters to the tent cities of Port-au-Prince to stop the spread of cholera. Please come and enjoy dinner with us at Waid’s Haitian Cuisine and Lounge and support this critical aid effort to Haiti.
Throughout the evening there will be appearances by local Seattle bands, a silent auction of Haitian art, and spoken word. Voices of earthquake survivors and members of the Haitian community will come together to deliver remembrances and celebrate the culture of Haiti.

There will be a suggested donation at the door of $12 for adults and $8 for students. All proceeds from this event will go towards helping the victims of the earthquake and cholera outbreak.

Please save this date and help make a difference in the lives of people in need.
