“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.
