To raise funds for earthquake relief, Cal State East Bay will host a Haitian Relief Benefit Concert at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 29, in the University Theatre. The event is coordinated by the Department of Theatre and Dance, in collaboration with Associated Students, Inc. Presents and several student organizations.  

The Haitian band Kalbass Kreyol will headline, with additional performances by several dancers, musicians and slam poets.

Admission will be free, but donations will be accepted at the door. All proceeds will directly benefit the relief efforts of Doctors Without Borders in Haiti, a part of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), an international medical humanitarian organization working in more than 60 countries to assist people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe.
