There are many local events benefiting Haiti in the wake of the recent earthquake; you can find our round-up here.
But while most of the fundraisers include music or some other cultural aspect that tie them to Haiti, none have gone as far as the Tribute to Haiti, starting tonight at 6:30 p.m.
Pappas Cigar Lounge, at 9648 East Arapahoe Road in Greenwood Village, will host the Tribute to Haiti, which includes Haitian music, food, drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and arts, plus a silent auction. The $25 suggested donation and silent-auction proceeds will benefit International Orthodox Christian Charities; for more information, call 303-792-2519.
