HAITI HOMEBUILDING BENEFIT
9 p.m., White Water Tavern. Donations.

In the days since the tragic earthquake shook Haiti, the tremendous outpouring of support, monetary and otherwise, has been nothing short of inspirational. Global nonprofit organizations like Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders have done tremendous work in the area, but there are local charities trying to make a difference there, too. The Community Development Foundation for Haiti (CDFH) was started by Little Rock native Jonathan Buford, a teacher and farmer who lived in Haiti during his time in the Peace Corps. The CDFH provides Haitian communities with technical, logistical and financial support focusing on infrastructure and education. Now, the CDFH is trying to raise money to reconstruct homes in the capitol, Port-Au-Prince. To help out, several of Little Rock's finest, The Moving Front, Magic Hassle and Frown Pow'r's and the Times' own JT Tarpley, have agreed to perform at White Water on Thursday. Donations will be accepted for admission, so come out and support the foundation's efforts in Haiti.
