From 7 to 11pm on May 1st 2010, Composition Gallery will host "May Day Art Party for Haiti", featuring a silent art auction, food and drink, and music. All proceeds will benefit the Jenkins/Penn Haitian Relief Organization.
Hope to see you there!!!
The Jenkins/Penn Haitian Relief Organization was born out of Sean Penn's efforts to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina and philanthopist Diana Jenkins' struggles in her native Bosnia. J/P HRO is based on the ground in Haiti. They have a large network of doctors and emergency management volunteers at their disposal, as well as a deep roster of influential contacts across government, non-governmental and international agencies, which has proved extremely beneficial in cutting through the bureaucracy that naturally comes with a relief effort. Their mission is to save lives and bring relief to the Haitian people quickly and effectively. J/P HRO harnesses the power of 21st century technology, a vast network of contacts and volunteers, fundamental emergency response techniques, and community organizing skills to bring about positive change in Haiti.
