Rhode Island Musicians Band Together Again
to Benefit Haiti
Featuring WORLD PREMIER BAND
Young Rust, Don Colt & Company, Mary Andrews, Radio Badlands, Front & Center, Image, Steve Anthony & The Persuasion, and Special Guests.
Five years ago in response to the devastating earthquakes in Haiti, Rhode Island’s most popular musicians gathered to generously donate their time and talent to hold an emergency benefit. That Sunday in March 2010, over 900 people danced the afternoon away and nearly $90,000 was raised to benefit The Providence Haiti Outreach, a Rhode Island based, 30-year-old organization dedicated to helping the children of Haiti. Today, Haiti remains shattered by poverty and the aftershock of the earthquakes that left every family suffering untold loss of lost loved ones, lost limbs, and lost hope.
We ask you to join us on Sunday, March 1st to Rock 4 Haiti again and help some of the world’s most needy children. We understand that many organizations reach out and ask for help, but we think that we are one of the most effective at getting the job done. The Providence Haiti Outreach supports The Pezzelli Memorial School (a.k.a. St. Dominic School) in Marigot, Haiti, as well as Salesian Fathers’ schools in the slums of Port-au-Prince. Since inception, the organization has raised funds to benefit over 5000 of the world’s most needy children. Providence Haiti Outreach, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, is run completely with volunteers and is able to bypass the “red tape” of other similar organizations. One-hundred percent of all funds raised are put directly into the hands of those that need help most. In the past five years, we have installed several water purification systems, starting with a small pump that helped just the school and later building a large cistern system that provides clean water to the entire community. We continue to feed, clothe and educate hundreds of children each year and have hopes of adding a secondary school to further their education – the only hope these children have to grow up and lead better lives than their parents.

We look forward to seeing you!
