Transparency for Haiti Benefit, Aug. 15
August 8, 2013 -
SANTA MONICA, CATransparency for Haiti, a staunch advocate of innovative grassroots initiatives in Haiti, is proud to announce the upcoming Third Annual Benefit Show on Thursday, August 15, 7 p.m., at the Fred Segal Salon in Santa Monica.
The evening will feature live music by Chris Shiflett and The Dead Peasants, authentic Haitian food from TiGeorges Chicken, as well as Haitian-inspired cocktails to raise funds towards providing clean fuel and cook stoves in Haiti.
Jesika Bishop, founder and President of Transparency for Haiti, is eager to introduce the organizations current endeavors: Haitis masses are perpetually stuck in a cycle of struggle for basic day-to-day survival. Alleviating some of those burdens allows time and energy to be spent creating and thriving rather than just getting by. The alternative fuel project is one example of the many efforts inherent with this philosophy, in addition to protecting and restoring the environment.
We are extremely grateful to Chris Shiflett for supporting the cause and we look forward to this special performance, said Bishop. Shiflett is known for his work as the lead guitarist for the Foo Fighters. To donate or purchase tickets ($35), please visit transparencyhaiti.co/donate.
