For the fourth year in a row, Flying High for Haiti is hosting a Brazilian Night. A fundraiser event in which all proceeds will go to help the needed kids of Haiti and to rebuild the Haitian community. It will be happening in Key Biscayne on March 1st, and FHFH has announced new projects for the community. As usual, some important people and government officials will attend, a total of 230 people or so this year. It’ll be a great event and everyone is more than welcome to attend. If anyone is not able to attend they will still be able to contribute.

The event happening in Key Biscayne will support mainly Haitian kids and their communities

In regards of the fourth annual Brazilian Night, Flying High for Haiti is hosting an event from which all proceeds will go towards supporting Êcole Du Village, a community school in Île-à-Vache, Haiti, and rebuilding hurricane-damaged homes.

The event will be happening on March 1st, 2019, at 7:00 pm, at:

Key Biscayne Beach Club
685 Ocean Drive
Key Biscayne, FL 33149

It will be organized by Flying High For Haiti and Key Biscayne Rotary Club and supported by; Rotary Club of Key Biscayne, Churrasco Brasil, Pantai Granite, Metropolitan International School of Miami, KB, Ibis Studio, Kendra Scott, Weichert Realtors, KB realtors, Iberiabank, Stefano’s, and Novecento.

There’ll be a theme! FHFH past fundraisers and its new projects

The theme of the Brazilian night is “Bahia” and the dress code will be white attire. The benefits of the event will go to a community school in Haiti and its 135 students, Haiti overall will benefit and also individual houses that have been damaged by the earthquake. This event has been happening for 4 years and has had different goals and purposes which have helped the island as much as possible. In past years, FHFH has raised funds to pay for teachers’ salaries, build new classrooms and bathrooms install water tanks and filters, provide solar power lamps and purchase school materials for 135 students. After Hurricane Mathew struck Île-à-Vache in 2016, 64 homes have been fixed and rebuild.

The proceeds from the event are going to be used to build a solar-powered computer center which will fulfill the dual purpose of servicing the community as well as the 135 students at Êcole du Village. In order to keep the center operating in the evening, it needs a reliable source of energy. In consultation with the local community, we have determined that the most viable option is a solar powered system taking advantage of the year-round intense sunshine on the island.

In the past, the event has been attended by a number of 200 people. This year it is expected to be attended by 230.
