The minimum donation for each night of the benefit is $8 -- but larger donations will be accepted. For those who can’t make it the event, there is information regarding outside contributions on Bishop Gumbleton's website. Net door proceeds and a portion of bar revenues will help the bishop purchase medical supplies to take with them to Klinik Sen Michel.
Also, our pal Rick Manore over at the Music Hall, alerted us to a Hatian benefit -- this one to aid the children of Haiti -- which takes place tomorrow night, January 21st , at the cigar and martini Lounge, La Casa De La Habana, in Harmonie Park (1502 Randolph St. Detroit,) from 6 to 10 p.m. Hosted by the establishment's manager, Maria Petrenko (who has many friends in both Haiti and Dominican Republic), the event's proceeds (all from donations received -- no amount too small or large) will go to UNICEF for Haitian children's relief. The non-formal event will feature house wine tasting, donated by Solttera, as well as raffles -- one of which will include two free tickets to the Russian Classical Ballet, on Jan.23rd at the Music Hall. A cigar sampler will also be raffled off. Haitian music will be featured throughout the evening. Phone 313-285-8332 for more info.
