Haiti benefit well attended

To Haiti with Love, a fundraiser to benefit earthquake-devastated Haiti was held Wednesday March 17 in Bolton Landing as a collaboration between the Emmanuel United Methodist Church along with various community restaurants, Bolton Central School and local organizations.

The event featured a corned beef and cabbage dinner - and baked ziti for those not in the mood for St. Patrick's day food - was prepared and donated by Lakeside Lodge & Grill in Bolton Landing. The meal was served at the Emmanuel United Methodist Church.

The acts Aces High and Tim Moriarty performed in Bolton Central's gymnasium, and local restaurants held Happy Hours mid-evening.

The Bolton Free Library will offered the film "The Road to Fondwa" with a dessert buffet.

All funds raised raised during the evening's events were donated to Haiti Relief through the United Methodist Committee on Relief. Medical care, water supplies, food, and housing continue to be urgent needs as the island country faces the upcoming rainy season.
