Help End Local Poverty and Glitter and Grunge present:
Hope For Haiti -Benefit Concert and Handmade Market
Friday, February 5, 2010
7:00pm - 10:00pm
Arcade Church - Cryder Gym
From Claire of Glitter and Grunge:
The earthquake in Haiti has hit close to home for several of our friends who are in the process of adopting children in Haiti or thinking about beginning the process. There are thousands of children homeless and hundreds who have families in the United States who have been waiting to bring home their children - some for years. Haiti before the eartquake had over 300,000 orphans and not enough orphanages to care for them.
In an effort to help we are organizing a benefit concert and handmade sale in Sacramento. We are working with an organization called Help End Local Poverty (www.helpendlocalpoverty.com) which works closely with two Rescue Center/Orphanages in Port au Prince, as well as orphanages in Africa. Our fundraiser will specifically benefit the Haitian orphanages.
The event is February 5 at 7 pm and will feature a number of local indie musicians and crafters. We are not charging for booth spaces, just asking that at least 10% of your sales that evening go to HELP. The event takes place at Arcade Church in Sacramento, 3927 Marconi Ave. Each space will include a 6 ft table and two chairs.
If you are interested in helping or having a booth please let me know asap, as space is very limited.
