Several months ago we got a call from our good friend Scarlett Thorne to help her promote an event she was organizing with her friend Mia Evans. This Saturday, the event, Rekindle the Night, will be held at Midtown Bar and Grill in Broadripple to help raise money for children in Haiti. We are extremely honored to have been asked to help forward along this message and can’t wait to be a part of this Saturday’s festivities. Mia sent us a quote on why this charity event was so important for her to organize!
“Like many other wonderful things born from tragedy, the Charity Gala was a product of necessity. I lost the love of my life, a hardship many can relate to especially those currently facing the aftermath of the devastating earthquakes that hit Haiti . It became quite clear that I needed to put my efforts, energy, heart and compassion into something much larger than myself. I’m fortunate in that I’m surrounded by a circle of friends and family who are not only selfless, but extremely inspirational, and it was this inspiration that yielded the Charity Gala. Save the Children Organization is committed to doing whatever is necessary to provide a better living to those affected the most by the Haiti quakes, the children. Our community has shown just how powerful a message can be and has come together to not only meet but exceed our goal of $10,000 in donations. I am so proud of everyone who has participated and look forward to seeing all the kind, giving hearts that will be attending the Gala to make a better life for some children who are in desperate need of our help. “
Below are the details from their Facebook page:
On April 17th we will be hosting a Red Carpet Charity Gala at Mid Town Bar and Grill for Save the Children Organization with a goal to raise $10,000 for the Haiti Relief Children.
At 5 p.m. on January 12, an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter Scale struck the impoverished island nation of Haiti. It was centered 15 miles from the capital of Port-Au Prince. The earthquake is believed to be the country’s worst in 200 years.
All children in the affected area have experienced a great shock and are likely to be very stressed and in need of emotional support now and for many months to come. Save the Children has significant expertise and experience in caring for the emotional needs of children in emergency situations.
Your support is critical – Save the Children will be working nonstop for children in Haiti for many months and is seeking private support for our relief and recovery efforts.
