Progress has continued on the three permanent classrooms we began last month. In order to complete these classrooms and continue providing free education to our over 190 students, we have set an ambitious fundraising goal for the next three months.
In order to meet this goal, we have planned a variety of fundraisers. As always, in addition to these planned events and programs, we rely on direct donations. Please consider supporting the future of Lekole de la Grace de Caneille and the hundreds of kids who have been given the gift of education. Information on how to make donations can be found here. In addition to direct donations, there are a variety of ways you can contribute through the following planned fundraisers:

Voyage to Haiti Benefit Concert with Crossing Borders String Quartet

Esch Studio, Warch Campus Center, Lawrence University

Appleton, WI 54911
The Caneille Regional Development Fund presents Voyage to Haiti, featuring Haitian and French classical, folk, and voodoo music performed by the Crossing Borders String Quartet. The music will include string quartets by French composer Darius Milhaud, by Haitian composer Julio Racine, and string quartet arrangements of Haitian folk and voodoo music.
The concert marks the Wisconsin debut of the Crossing Borders Quartet. The quartet members’ 2010 performance of Haitian and West African music was broadcast on Chicago’s WFMT classical radio station and lauded by Chicago Sun Times music critic Andrew Patner as “deeply moving and inspiring.”
Attendance is free, however, free-will donations and silent auction proceeds will benefit the Caneille Regional Development Fund. This concert is brought to Lawrence University by the Students’ War Against Hunger and Poverty (SWAHP).
