Proceeds from the benefit—which takes place on the one year anniversary of the 7.0 earthquake that devastated Haiti—will be donated directly to the children and residents of Haiti who are still in desperate need of medical care, shelter, clothing and education.
The poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, Haiti was hit by a hurricane and a cholera epidemic after experiencing last year’s earthquake. In response, non-profit organization Americans Care and Share pledged to focus its Angelcare program on helping the poverty-stricken country and provide relief to Haitians. Tonight’s benefit will feature performances by Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Trulio Disgracias (featuring Norwood Fisher, John Bigham, Bronx Style Bob, Fernando Pullum), OPM, Meet Me At The Pub, and more. There will also be live art, featured guest speakers, and a silent auction.
The concert takes place at Central SAPC, 1348 14th Street, Santa Monica at 9pm.
