“Haiti Cherie” Benefit to Support Grace International

I attended the “Haiti Cherie” Benefit to Support Grace International this past week and I have to say it was an atmosphere ripe for giving and celebrating.

Demarco Morgan, Anchor and Reporter, NBC New York served as Master of CeremoniesNew York City professionals, were in attendance. Including former Americas Next Top Model (ANTM) contestant Keenyah Hill, Publicist BJ Coleman, Fashion designer Briana Bigham, Prince Kunle and Princess Keisha Omilana of Nigeria, Plus Size Model Angellika Morton, and Stylist, Alexa Winner.  The District 36 served as the venue for this first annual event as authentic Haitian music filled the place.

 When speaking with the Master of Ceremonies Demarco Morgan I  asked him what was his hope for Haiti 

“Continue inspire  by faith and committment. They are an example that you can make it through any situation.  That we do whatever we can individually and collectively to help Haiti succeed. When Haiti succeeds we all succeed .”

He spoke on how he wanted Haiti to thrive and get to a place that is fitting for the  first independent Black Nation.

I also posed publicist BJ Coleman the same question and his response was “Hope that there is full recovery.  With basic necessities  [that we all take for granted] that no citizen in Haiti goes without.”

Towards the end of the evening I also spoke briefly with Fabrise Armand.   He greeted me with familiar Haitian greeting “Mwen Lakay”  (loose translation “person from home”)   

 He stated his gratitude for everyone who came and supported to make the evening a success.
