Save the date, 30th October 2014
Haven US is pleased to announce that the 4th annual card game fundraiser will take place in Bobby Vans Steakhouse restaurant downtown on Broad Street on Thursday 30th October 2014. Last year over 150 people attended this event and it was a huge success with Haven raising over $100,000 for our shelter programmes in Haiti. The night promises to be lots of fun with an open bar and hors d’oeuvres served up to both card players and guests who would like to come along and support those who are participating in the actual card game. Please contact Sarah Fitzpatrick at email@example.com to reserve your place for this year’s card game.
Haven US Golf Classic, Thursday 15th May 2014
The 3rd annual Haven US Golf Classic took place on Thursday May at Garrison Golf Club, Garrison. While there was some rain, this did not dampen our golfer’s spirits and the day was a huge success with 20 teams turning up to participate. A total of $36,000 was raised on the day to help fund our on-going projects in Haiti. Big congratulations to the Doral bank team who took home first prize by a narrow victory!
Haven US in Miami, 8th May 2014
The launch of the ‘Miami Chapter’ of Haven US took place in the Setai Hotel in South Beach, Miami. A total of 60 people turned out to hear about the work that Haven is doing in Haiti. After Tom Bryant, Chairman of Haven US, opened the evening, Sarah then did a 10 minute power point presentation of all of our projects in Haiti. A video was shown at the end to finish of the evening. John Moore was also present to answer any questions that people had. Feedback from the audience was positive and a couple of people have expressed interest in getting involved further.
Haven US would like to take this opportunity to thank the advisory board here in Miami for all the work they have done to date here in Miami and for their continued commitment to helping Haven build its network here and begin fundraising for our programmes in Haiti!
