June 4th Fundraising Dinner Gala

We would like to thank all participants and sponsors that helped make our first Dinner Gala a success. There were over 100 people in attendance, from the Mayor of the City of North Miami to several guests who had just flown in from Haiti that same day. The Gala was a great show of support for the school, giving everyone a taste of what Collège Universitaire Caraïbe (c.U.C.) once was and the even greater school we hope to rebuild. The night featured various presentations and speakers, and wonderful performances by the children of the Dance Creation Dance Academy, and former C.U.C. student Nadine Narcisse. Edwidge Danticat, the featured guest speaker gave a wonderful speech which included her memories of C.U.C. and a reading of one of her recent pieces written after the earthquake. Mrs. Jocelyne Trouillot-Levy, founder and President of C.U.C. closed off the night giving her thank you's and vision for the future.

Over nine thousand dollars were raised during this wonderful evening. The funds of the gala will primarily be used for temporary tents needed for the students as well as the early stages of the reconstruction. We look forward to everyone's continued support in future as we organize other events, all with the main goal of rebuilding C.U.C. and helping support education in Haiti.

Here are a few pictures of the June 4th Dinner Gala.
