Concert tonight to benefit Haitian orphans

From 5-9pm this evening (Friday, Jan 22, 2010):

The Woodlands will host a benefit concert, “Give Hope to Haiti”. The event will benefit The Hydrate Hope Project, a clean water project of two relief organizations based in The Woodlands, I Am Change and Real Hope for Haiti, an orphan care and rescue center.

Funds raised from the “Give Hope to Haiti” benefit concert will be used to rebuild damaged facilities at several orphanages in Haiti, provide food supplies for children, repair broken water wells throughout the region and implement a bio-sand filter production project.

The benefit concert will feature live entertainment from Aaron Ivey, Matt McCloskey and Gatlin Elms, as well as bands from Austin and Nashville. The event is free and open to the public, however organizers request attendees make a monetary donation towards the relief effort.

The concert is an immediate way for The Woodlands and Market Street to help,” says Jenny Taylor, activities coordinator for Market Street – The Woodlands. “We have some terrific bands booked.” Taylor adds Market Street tenants also are getting involved in the event. Jasper’s, for example, will host each entertainer during the benefit concert.
