First, we would like to thank everyone that came to the help 4 haiti benefit at five star.  Thanks to your donations we raised $1000 that was donated to Red Cross for their haiti relief.  This would not have been possible without you and your generosity!  We would also like to thank you for being such a great crowd and partying to pretty much everything we played!

Thanks to Five Star for hosting the event and also chipping in to round off the donation to an even thousand bucks.  If you’re looking to throw an event in Raleigh, this is one of the most unique places to do it in my opinion.

Thanks to DJ SPCLGST for rocking out with Forge on the turntables all night.

Thanks to Darany for the awesome flyer design

Thanks to Chris Charles of Creative Silence for covering the event and shooting all the awesome photos in the event gallery below. Make sure you visit his page and contact him for any photography needs.

As you can see, it took many talented and creative people to help us bring this event together in a 48 hour time frame.  Without them we wouldn’t have been able to do it and we are truly grateful to have them as friends!

When we took the check to red cross we met this man, Alex Alexis, who is originally from Haiti but lives here now and is a registered nurse.  He is soon to be deployed to the USS Comfort which is currently positioned near Haiti to provide relief.  He will be working as a French and Creole translator for at least the next month.  Your contributions at the party make efforts like this by Alex possible.  He and the rest of Red Cross in Raleigh are very thankful for you for the donations!

Photos from the event are below, feel free to save any of them if you find yourself. We suggest hitting the “view with piclens” option to view them fullscreen and slideshow style.

Thank you again.
