Canada’s Most Caring Community Comes Together to Help Haiti

January 26, 2010

From the organizers of the Help Haiti Benefit Concert:

Following the recent earthquake in Haiti, members of the Guelph community have pulled together to organize a benefit event featuring a wide selection of our amazing and world-class local-area talent. With overwhelming support from the local community, event organizers (Rev. Paul Clarkson, Dr. Ajay Heble, Sam Turton) have set a goal of raising $20,000 from this event, with all proceeds going to the Canadian Red Cross.

PLEASE RESERVE A TICKET NOW – or get one for a friend!
