CHANCES for CHILDREN benefit at Union pool, THIS TUESDAY January 19th!
Proceeds go to the Creche De l'Enfant Jesus Orphanage in Haiti
Performing artists include:
DJ SET BY PAT MAHONEY (LCD Soundsystem)
DJ SET BY JOURNEYMAN
$15 - includes some food and drink for those who get there early!
Snacks provided by - Blue Ribbon Bakery, Chickalicious, Dumont, Bedford Cheese Shop
Proceeds will go to Chances for Children and the Creche de l'Enfant Jesus where they provide orphans with a safe and sane sanctuary, and return them to a healthy state while they wait for a family to adopt them.
The orphanage lies on the outskirts of the city, but because of the devastation in the Haitian infrastructure their food and water supply will be depleted by next week. New Yorkers, Duke and Lisa Scoppa, are in the process of adopting two children from the orphanage and are now heading this fund raiser to get the orphanage the supplies they need to survive.
ALSO ALL PROFITS FROM THE TACO TRUCK ON TUESDAY WILL BE DONATED TO THE RED CROSS!!!
