Indianapolis, IN — April 25, 2023 — Join HAI on May 7th, 2023, at the stunning Indianapolis Arts Garden, 110 West Washington Street, for the 1st Annual HAI Unity Fundraising Gala hosted by two time Emmy-Winning News Anchor, Host, and Correspondent Lionel Moise! This event promises an unforgettable evening of musical entertainment, celebrations, learning, and networking.
The Haitian Association of Indiana was founded by Frere Herard and established in 2008 as a sure way to guarantee that the rich culture will be passed down to the next generation—now that HAI can claim the Hoosier state as its home. Over the years, the population has grown to over 40,000 immigrant residents. As a result, HAI shifted its mission to provide essential resources and tools to the consistently growing immigrant community and share the culture with greater Indiana residents. Today, HAI has developed into a community–an a-based organization providing resources to newly immigrated residents and serving as a community hub for essential day-to-day information and resources.
The mission of the Haitian Association of Indiana Corp. is to promote social well-being and support the educational advancements of Haitians in Indiana. However, the organization’s support system extends further to provide educational and cultural insights to Friends of Haiti, wishing to help the country and share Haiti’s rich culture with the community and friends of Haiti in Indiana.
The networking portion of the evening will begin at 5:30 PM EST, allowing guests to connect with like-minded individuals and professionals from various industries. This is the perfect chance to expand the network and build new relationships.
At 6:30 PM EST, the main event will kick off. During this time, the guests will learn about the Haitian Association of Indiana (HAI) and its goal to build a Community Resource Center. In addition, the guests will hear inspiring stories from individuals impacted by HAI’s work and gain a deeper understanding of the organization’s mission to empower and support the Haitian community in Indiana.
The event will wrap up at 8:30 PM EST, leaving each guest feeling inspired and energized to impact everyone’s community positively. So, join HAI for an evening of unity, philanthropy, and celebration!
