I swear, working for a non-profit has made me a softie. Or maybe it’s the fact that fundraisers have the best food and drinks. Either way, this is one to check out. Local deliciousness Pio Pio Riko is sponsoring, too!
The Haiti Expedition Project (THEP) is having a non-profit fundraiser on the 27th here in Greenpoint.
The Haiti Expedition Project (THEP) is proud to invite you to our second 2009 Summer event. We will be presenting a selling exhibition of paintings by the contemporary Haitian artist Gaalo (Herve Sabin). Proceeds from the exhibition will go to support the work of THEP in education, environment and infrastructure in Haiti.
The exhibition will begin at 3:33 on Saturday June 27th 2009 (Herve’s 33rd birthday) Summer food on the rooftop grill will be available until 6:30 and after 6:30 Haitian specialties and Caribbean food and appetizers will be served. There will be live music all day and night and the music, food and drinks will go all night long!
Admission is $10 which will include 1 drink ticket and food. There will be a cash bar with plenty of economically priced beer, wine and cocktails as well as some extraordinary and some ordinary hors d’oeuvres. Live music will be going on all day and night inside and out at the CEEFLAT’s amazing and huge rooftop lounge which will be open to relax and enjoy the artwork of the CEEFLAT’s owners – Kevin Corcoran and Peter Bragino as well as the summertime Manhattan skyline. Remember to get your hand stamped at the door if you come early and want to return in the evening!
We need everyone there so don’t miss this opportunity to participate in a great cause and an amazing NYC summer party!
