Salt Lake City held one of the most creative and exciting benefit events for One Hundred For Haiti yet: an inspiration for what could be a series of creative events worldwide combining art and music…
MELLOW VS METAL: A benefit for One Hundred for Haiti
(supporting our Rural Water Project and GTPE sexual assault task force)
From 6-8PM, event coordinator Meghann Griggs arranged for an acoustic set by former Jets to Brazil member Jeremy Chatelain, followed by a spoken word set by Greg Bennick from One Hundred For Haiti. All the while, there was a screen printing show happening…the venue was Spilt Ink, a local screen printer…and Meghann coordinated local artists to contribute Haiti-inspired art which was then screened onto shirts and hoodies for attendees. People could bring anything they liked and have it screened for just $5. Contributing artists were:
Dave Habben – habbenink
Amanda Powell – 27 Tattoo
Jon Lange – 27 Tattoo
Andrew King – Heart of Gold Tattoo
Oscar Garcia – Heart of Gold Tattoo
Sonya Evans – Independent Local Artist
Sarah de Azevedo – Oni Tattoo
Then, FROM 8pm – 11pm the night continued with music from touring band Chingaso, locals Oxcross, and then finally The Ditch and the Delta.
More benefits like this would work wonders for One Hundred For Haiti. The idea from beginning to end, was all Meghann’s doing. You could do the same: think of an idea and then make it happen. You will have our support as you support us!
