I think we all want to support the people of Haiti, and also, all of us like having a good time. So I’ve compiled a list of benefits for Haiti in the U street area. I’ve tried to confirm the charities that the money will be going to for each event, and that they are reputable. I personally have been frustrated with people asking me to give money “for Haiti” but not giving me any more information. I need to know that the money is going to a well-known, reputable organization. So check out one of these events (and let me know if you know of others in the comments):

Long View Gallery

Free this Saturday? Have you seen the new Long View Gallery? Want to support a good cause?  Here’s an event worthy of your time: the Granulosa Cell Tumour Foundation, supported by the Embassy of New Zealand, is holding a benefit at Long View Gallery (link includes info about tickets, which are $30) this Saturday at 7.

Granulosa cell tumors are a very rare form of ovarian cancer and because of that, have received less attention from researchers. Founded in 2004, the foundation’s mission is to provide women with information and knowledge about the disease while raising funds to support research in order to develop more effective treatments.

The event will include appetizers and drinks, including a wine and cheese tasting from New Zealand’s finest vineyards and creameries. There will also be a silent auction with items from fine dining and retail places throughout DC. Music will be provided by The Latin Jazz Project. AND you can view Long View Gallery’s current collection of works.

Go, support a good cause and have a good time.
