Friday To-Do: 'Hands for Haiti' Benefit

Posted By on Thu, May 19, 2011 at 2:01 PM


7 p.m., Clinton Presidential Center. $25 minimum donation

It's too real a fact that it's been almost a year and a half since 2010's devastating earthquake in Haiti and the country is still in a precarious balance, with sickness still abound, the government as unsteady as ever (which is saying a lot) and a bulk of its population still displaced. However, a team from Arkansas consisting of a doctor, a nurse, a translator and a microfinancier (don't discount the importance of sustainability), is aiming its sights towards the country and, this Friday, a number of area musicians are helping with the cause. The Clinton Center will host members of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, the Amy Garland Band, Paul Morphis, and Bonnie Montgomery Trucking, all performing to help launch the local "Hands for Haiti" team to under-assisted parts of Port-au-Prince. The group asks for a minimum donation of $25, but at 9 p.m., when the rockin' starts, you can get in for a "pay-what-you-can" donation to the effort.
