Please join the Colorado Haiti Project at The Lyons Farmette’s River Bend property on July 29th for our second annual Farm Dinner Benefit for Haiti. At 6:00pm we will gather on the banks of the beautiful St. Vrain River to enjoy rum cocktails, great conversation and the music of Eldorado Canyon bluegrass band, Psychodillo. Savory Cuisines will prepare a delicious Haitian-inspired dinner for us from many locally grown ingredients including produce from the 63rd Street Farm and goat from El Regalo Ranch. Special guests will share with us their personal stories about the transformative influence of the Colorado Haiti Project’s Professional Scholarship, Entrepreneurship and Atelier Development Programs. We will end our time together with sweet treats provided by Spice of Life Catering and the Colorado Rose Cake Company. This evening promises to be a fun and memorable celebration of Coloradans’ successful 25-year partnership with rural Haitian communities to support their rise out of extreme poverty.
Founded 26 years ago by three Episcopal priests, the Colorado Haiti Project (CHP) works in direct partnership with the people of Petit Trou de Nippes, Haiti to create a prosperous, healthy, educated, and empowered population. From the humble beginnings of building a well and a simple structure to house the initial St. Paul’s School and St. Paul’s Church, CHP has grown to working in partnership with the broader community to implement a multi-sector package of education, health, economic development, and water and sanitation and hygiene programs with a vision of sustainable and community fostered impact.
