Musical Event Fundraises for Haitian Relief
A recent project created in Landmark’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program – a partnership of two women – raised money to help those affected by the Haiti Earthquake by holding a unique fundraiser – a pub night in Abbotsford, Canada (near Vancouver), at the Rain Bar & Grill. The event, which was sold out, raised approximately $3,500 for Salvation Army Haiti relief, according to this Colour me Happy blog.
According to the story in the Abbotsford-Mission Times, the event, which was held January 29, featured a wide variety of entertainment and fundraising, including food, music, door prizes, a 50/50 draw and a silent auction, all for a $20 ticket. The event was hosted in partnership with Country 107.1 FM, which promoted the event, and is holding another event on February 5 at the Coast Chilliwack Hotel. 100% of all proceeds from the event went directly to the Salvation Army Haiti Relief.
