November 14th | Lage Kò’w! A night of music, dancing and fun at the Carlton Hotel – by Jessica Tong, Communications and Outreach Intern

11.20.14

HCX held an evening of dancing and live drumming at the Carlton Hotel’s Millesime Bar, which brought our diverse community together to have a good time while supporting our organization. DJ Jephté Guillaume was invited to spin a mix of R&B classics, house music and rara infused beats while the sound of the drums echoed and filled the room with energy and life, thanks to Okai from Brown Rice Family, Atibon Legba, Jean Mary Brignol and Morgan Zwerlein.

This intimate evening was a great way to launch our #GivingTuesday campaign.  In order to create momentum for this global day of giving, the HCX team set up a pledge table, encouraging everyone to lage kò’w, let loose, by taking pictures with props and signs celebrating their pledges to donate on #GivingTuesday.  Those who participated spread the word of their support by sharing their photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

HCX is largely funded by individuals — with over 40% of the budget coming from individual donors.  The evening at the Carlton was a great reminder of the power of grassroots philanthropic efforts.  Giving Tuesday efforts brought in $2,590 in donations from over 50 donors, which allowed the organization to raise nearly $6,500 for our year-end campaign. Thank you to all the donors, artists and guests!  Until next time…

The 1804 List, named in honor of Haiti’s year of independence, recognizes Haitian-American Changemakers in the United States who have demonstrated outstanding achievement and success in their profession and proven themselves to be forces for change in their communities.

The 1804 List will also recognize outstanding Haitian-Americans as our Ones To Watch who represent our community’s innovators and rising stars from a wide range of industries and backgrounds.

Our List reflects the broad range of accomplishments by Haitian-Americans in the United States. The 1804 List of Haitian-American Changemakers and Ones To Watch for 2014 includes a former U.S. Ambassador, an international soccer superstar and a NBA legend, an Emmy award winning make-up artist, iconic actor, pioneering not-for-profit leaders, ground breaking jazz vocalist, legislator and entrepreneur.
