Haiti Benefit - Poetry, Music, Solidarity - 5/15/10

Many thanks to all who helped make the benefit for Haiti a success last night. Loretta Schmitz set the project in motion, and with the help of the Newman Center, Larry Castagnola, Susan Kelly-DeWitt, Sandra Senne, Zoe Kiethley, Manny and Mary, Victoria and Fred, James DenBoer, Richard Hansen, Patrick Grizzell and Brady and Liz - great music! - Dennis Schmitz of course - we raised over $1500 for Partners in Health. All the poets who read were glad to have a chance to read a piece in honor of Quinton Duval, too - he had originally been scheduled to read at the event. Thanks to the SPC board for helping to cover the costs, to all the volunteers, and especially to Loretta for all her good works! If you still want to donate to Partners in Health - and they are doing good work in Haiti - go to www.pih.org
