On January 12, 2010, a massive 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti near the capitol of Port-au-Prince. An already vulnerable country due to poor infrastructure and extreme poverty, this natural disaster has created extraordinary need that calls for an extraordinary response. Over a million people have been affected by this devastating catastrophe—lives lost, homes and property destroyed, families displaced and separated from one another.

In Arkansas, a group of the state’s finest musicians and visual artists are coming together for a benefit event on Friday, February 5th, to be held at the Statehouse Convention Center in Downtown Little Rock. Some of Arkansas’ best music from rock ‘n roll and jazz and an auction of works created by some of Arkansas’ best loved visual artists.

This benefit tribute will surely be an evening to remember. With a ticket price of $25, all proceeds will be given to the Clinton Bush Haiti Relief Fund, working to provide immediate relief and long-term support to earthquake survivors.
