Love 4 Haiti tonight at Random Row

January 23rd, 2010 · No Comments · By

I meant to get this info up much sooner, but it’s been a hectic week trying to catch up with a lot of stuff… anyway, there’s an event at Random Row tonight that’s a benefit fundraiser for Haiti relief efforts; Wendy says:

Love 4 Haiti will be an evening of music and art offerings from local artisans. A silent auction of art works, gift certificates, and dance lessons will begin at 5pm. A kaleidoscopic program of Charlottesville’s performing talent follows, including: Fire in the Belly (bellydance), Dzian! (world surf rock), Jdavyd Williams and the Basement Bhaktis (khirtan), Natty Peeps (roots reggae), Shootin Moon (acoustic), Matt Jones (acoustic), Secretly Y’all (storytelling), Scintillation (artistic fire dance), Stolen Arms (indie pop), and Your Spirit Animal in the Unreal City (psych shoegaze), and many more. Delicious food options donated by local restaurants will also be available for purchase”

“All the proceeds will be donated to organizations behind the earthquake relief efforts including Partners in Health (PIH), International Rescue Committee (IRC), UNICEF, and GHESKIO.”

There’s a lot more info, including a full performance schedule, and links to places where you can make donations over on this site. It looks like the whole thing will be running from 5pm until after midnight. Way to go, guys! This looks like a really interesting and worthwhile event.
