Although the shock of the earthquake in Haiti has waned, the need for more funding has not and will not for months or years to come. In response, Lions safety Louis Delmas, who has family ties with Haiti, has joined with We R Love, a non-profit Detroit group, to hold a fundraiser on Feb. 27.
The event will be at Bookies Bar in Detroit and 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to assist with the relief efforts in Detroit. Tickets range from $15 to $25 for general admission to $40 for VIP tickets.
“Seeing this amount of disaster in my home country has been heart- wrenching. I feel that it is my responsibility as a Haitian and an athlete to help where I can and this event is one of many ways I see that goal being accomplished,’’ Delmas said in a statement.
