This a a very special event. It's not about us, it's about helping others.

The recent earthquake in Haiti has caused immeasurable heartbreak and suffering. The survivors need our help.

On Wednesday, January 20, we will be getting together at a new venue in Danbury CT called Koo. It's a Japanese hibachi restaurant with 6 flaming hibachi grills each one seating 6 to 8 people at your table (food is made to order right in front of you), a cozy bar, a regular dining room and an event room.

You can come for dinner at 6pm, 7PM or 8PM

Their normal prices are from about $22 to about $35 per person depending on what you order for the Hibachi dinner show. Because the owner is caring and very kind, he has offered the price to only $15 to make this evening affordable. Dinner IS NOT required to attend.

Not only that, but a local DJ as offered his services free of charge to play for us in the warm a cozy event room at Koo as well. There will be no cover charge. Only a little bucket for you to drop as much or as little as you feel of a mind to, to help those in need in Haiti.

Even your drinks will be heavily discounted to put you in an even more generous mood.

But, don't feel you have to give. This is totally optional. You don't even need to come to dinner to participate. You can skip dinner altogether, enjoy the music and dancing and it won't cost you a dime.

We have some donors who have donated some very nice items and there will be a silent auction all night long untill 10PM. At the at point the winning bids will be posted and the winner can pay for the successful bids and go home with their prizes or stay and dance the night away.

Those wishing to donate something that might be wanted by the people attending that night can just bring your item or items. Small items are better but photos or descriptions of larger items, or goods or services like dinners out, babysitting, dinner party at your house, vacation packages that you have access to or anything that someone may want to bid on will be more than welcomed. Items will be put on the bid tables and assigned a silent bid card. There will also be a few live bid items auctioned later.

We could also use some volunteers to help set up, clean up and work to make this an enjoyable and helpful evening for those in need in Haiti

Come and join us. You'll be happy you did.

Note: 100% of the funds that are donated during this event will be donated to the American Red Cross Haitian effort
