Default Rum Benefit for Haiti in NY

Time: 6:00pm - 10:00pm

Dear Friends,

As most of you know by now on Tuesday January 12th, 2010 there was a devastating Earthquake in Haiti that has killed countless people and left millions in need of urgent medical care, food and shelter.

Our friend Ray Raymond is of Haitian descent, and both he and I have resolved to put on a charity fundraiser for the Red Cross and their humanitarian work in Haiti.

We're putting out a call to all friends in the industry to help us pull this off, both bartenders and suppliers, our friends in public relations and and our friends in media.

The plan is to throw a 4 hour OPEN BAR with rum punch, cocktails, beer and wine. We're talking about 300-500 people with a $40 donation for event attendees. That's going to work out $12,000-$20,000 that will go a long way to saving lives in Haiti.

This is our chance to do some good, ARE YOU WITH US?

I'm sorry I won't be in NY this weekend. Ray Raymond, one of the organizers is one of the pillars of the alcohol distribution business in NY and a great all round guy. I didn't know one of his parents was from Haiti until today. We all should learn something every day.
