Attend a Local Benefit for Haiti

In response to the recent tragedy in Haiti, many local restaurants and bars are hosting benefits for the victims of the Haiti earthquake. It's a great way to band together and show support for those in need. Below are a few local area benefits but if you can't make those, you can always make contributions to one of the many organizations online such as the American Red Cross, Global Giving, and Unicef.
