DETROIT ROCKS FOR HAITI – JAN. 29th & JAN 30th
Over 20 Detroit bands have come together to raise money for victims of the Haitian earthquake. Detroit Rocks For Haiti takes place on Friday, January 29th and Saturday, January 30th at the Magic Stick in Detroit.
Papa Joe Zainea (co-owner of the Majestic Theatre Center) approached an old acquaintance, retired Detroit Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, and asked if there was a way we could help. Bishop Gumbleton was instrumental in starting a clinic in Port Au Prince three years ago called Klinik Sen Michel. The Bishop is taking a group down to Haiti at the end of January to provide medical assistance to the many earthquake victims.
The minimum donation for each night of the benefit is $8 but larger donations will be accepted. For those that can’t make it down to the event, there is information on how to make a contribution on Bishop Gumbleton's website: bishopgumbleton.org. Net door proceeds and a portion of bar revenues will The money we donate from the benefit will help Bishop Gumbleton purchase medical supplies to take with them to Klinik Sen Michel - bandages, analgesics, antibiotics, ointments, antiseptics, etc.
If your media outlet can donate any time or space to help promote this effort, please let us know!
