Haitian-American candidate switches fund-raiser to relief eventby George Bennett | January 14th, 2010
Wismick St. Jean, who’s running for a Wellington village council seat, had scheduled a campaign fund-raiser for tonight at the Player’s Club. Instead, he’s turning it into an event to collect donations for earthquake-devastated Haiti.
“Haiti is not equipped to handle an earthquake of this magnitude 7.0 on its own. The Haitian people need your prayer and your financial assistance at this time in history,” St. Jean said in a press release.
