Digicel Bermuda to host benefit concert for Haiti
Digicel and local artists unite for Haiti
Digicel Haiti Gospel Benefit Concert – February 6, 7:30pm – Bermuda Institute School Auditorium
Friday, January 29th, 2010 – Hamilton, Bermuda: On Saturday, February 6, Digicel Bermuda will be the proud host of the Digicel Haiti Gospel Benefit Concert. Doors are opening at 6:30pm for a 7:30pm start. Taking place at the Bermuda Institute School Auditorium, the concert is meant to be a huge fundraiser, with 100% of all proceeds going to the Digicel Haiti Relief Fund.
The performance lineup includes such gospel acts as Grace Landy, McCartney Darrell, The Southampton Inspirational Choir, Neville Caines, New Season, Larita Adderly, Dwight “Pay Back” Warren, Desire Simons, Sia Spence, and LA Crew.
Corporate tickets are available for $250, sponsor tickets cost $100, patron tickets cost $50 and general admission is only $25. Tickets go on sale on Monday, February 1st, and all are encouraged to buy tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. The Digicel store on Church Street, the New Testament Church of God, the Adventist Book Center and the Christian Bookstore & Gift Center will all be selling tickets for this event, starting on Monday.
While the event aims to raise money for a serious cause, the event itself promises to be enjoyable. Refreshments will be for sale during the intermission and the audience will have chances to win various door prizes and giveaways.
“Digicel Bermuda wants to do all we can to raise money for the people of Haiti and we hope this concert will substantially increase the amount we can give,” states Wayne Caines, Digicel Bermuda CEO. “So many artists and production companies and stage managers have come together in such a short amount of time to donate their services, for which we are grateful. As the list is growing all the time, we will issue another statement specifically thanking each of our sponsors and full talent lineup for this event. One thing I would like to add is that all are welcome to attend this event, regardless of religious affiliation. This concert is really about the people of Haiti and it will be a very special event.”
Since the introduction of a $10 short code to raise money for the Digicel Haiti Relief Fund one week ago, Digicel Bermuda customers have donated over $10,000 to the cause. In addition to funds raised by the $1 short code put in place just after Haiti was ravaged by the earthquake on January 12, Digicel Bermuda has now raised close to $17,500. This concert is being produced to collect even more funds toward the cause.
