Charlie Pickett headlines concert at ArtsPark Jan. 29 to benefit Haitian orphans

Hollywood CARES for Haiti  kicks off its 10th Anniversary with “Hollywood Healing Haiti,” an annual benefit concert held at ArtsPark at Young Circle in Downtown Hollywood. This free, family-friendly concert will take place on Sunday, January 29, 2017 from 1:00pm-5:00pm, and all funds raised will directly benefit the Project Papillon Orphanage and Community Youth Center in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

“We are thrilled to celebrate this anniversary with our best concert event to date,” said Sharon Tanenhaus, President of Hollywood CARES for Haiti. “It is a great way to raise money and awareness for these very deserving children and the program they are a part of.”

“Hollywood Healing Haiti” will feature the musical talents of Charlie Pickett, Deaf Poets,  Locos Por Juana, and RaRa Rock Roots Rasin. In addition, attendees can look forward to raffle contests, children’s activities, food, and a pop-up art fair curated by Hollywood-based visual artist, Alissa Alfonso.
