Nigel Barker has quickly become a favorite here at Ecorazzi. In the past, Barker’s teamed up with the Humane Society of the United States (another one of our favs), raised money for charity at his birthday party, and is now using his fame to help spotlight the hunger crisis happening in Haiti.
On January 8th, Barker will present Haiti: Hunger & Hope — an exhibition of photographs shot during the food riots and UN closure in May.
The event will raise money for Edeyo (“Help Them”) – an organization that helps feed and educate impoverished children in Haiti — and feature an open bar, live and silent auction, special musical guests, and the chance to see some beautiful art!
The organization is asking a mere $25 donation at the door, and of course all of the money will go to benefit Edeyo. So if you live in NYC, make sure you visit the Milk Gallery on January 8, 2009 from 7:30pm – 10pm and help a great cause!
To make reservation, you can email RSVP@studionb.com, or learn more at Edeyo.com!
