Hamptons for Haiti is an organization hosting a series of benefit concerts to support Haitian earthquake victims. It was founded by musician and Hamptons local Dan Bailey in the hours following the tragic earthquake. His band, Living Rhythm, of which bassist Obed Jean Louis is Haitian, immediately began preparing weekly events to support the cause. One of Living Rhythm’s vocalists, “Zulu” Kheswa, was able to personally recommend the Yéle Haiti Foundation (www.yele.org), which was founded by her mentor and native Haitian, grammy-award winning artist Wyclef Jean. Hamptons for Haiti donates 100% of proceeds through Yéle, which we believe provides the most efficient and effective aid to Haiti.
For the month of January, Hamptons for Haiti is hosting three events in both NYC and the Hamptons. Dan Bailey & Living Rhythm will perform at Le Grand Dakar Restaurant on Friday, January 22.
Donations to Yéle will be collected at the door, with suggested donations ranging from $10 to $1000.
