Actor Hakeem Kae-Kazim (The Fourth Kind, Wolverine) joined forces with Heroes actor Jimmy Jean-Louis in Hollywood on January 28 to hold a benefit event to raise money for Haiti through Jimmy’s foundation Hollywood Unites For Haiti.
The event was held at the new Cuban bar La Descarga in Hollywood and funds as well as awareness was raised for HUFH. Celebs and friends turned out in full to enjoy the evening, bid on the silent auction and dance to Caribbean sounds. The cause of the evening was not forgotten as Jimmy gave a heartfelt speech about the awful disaster that has happened to his people.
Stars in attendance included Alice Amter (The Big Bang Theory), Ellen’s DJ Tony, director Tom Malloy, Treva Etienne (Terminator Salvation), Michelle Collins and many more.
Hollywood United For Haiti is a non profit organization. Not having a big organization to support, the donations go straight to the cause. HUFH founder Jimmy Jean-Lois says, “Haiti has suffered many set backs in its rich history and yet the Haitian people have never lost the character to face adversity with creativity, resilience, and community”.
