Lifeline Community Care Sunshine Coast together with the Sunshine
Coast Regional Council and a group of individuals and local businesses
has joined forces to produce the "HAITI LOVE "concert, in an effort to
raise money for those affected by the Haiti Earthquake; this event will
be staged at Stockland Park on the 28th March from 12:00 noon to 9:00
pm filled with fun and entertainment for all ages.
Project Manager and Sunshine Coast local Jonas Ramone was born in Haiti and adopted at the age of six to an Australian couple. His mother, brother, sister and niece still live in Haiti. Jonas' family survived the earthquake; however after a recent trip home he has seen firsthand the devastation that continues to effect the people of Haiti. Aid is bottle necked and is just not getting through to those that need it most. People are still digging through the debris with their bare hands. Recovery and reconstruction is far from over.
Lifeline Community Care Sunshine Coast has welcomed this event into the fold by auspicing the administration, public liability and publicity side of things. Lifeline hopes to enable Haiti to receive the much needed funds the music festival will raise.
The family friendly event will showcase national/local entertainment, rides, food stalls, raffles and fireworks. The organising committee seeks sponsorship from local business and in-kind support from industry and community groups.
If you would like to be involved or to offer assistance please contact Sol Paez on 5409 2619 or 0427129 208.
