Help "HEEL" Haiti Shoe Drive & Haitian Art Exhibition
"Help HEEL Haiti"
Art Basel Celebration 2016
Saturday, December 3, 2016, we once again turn our hearts to Haiti and continue to uplift the people and give help to those who desperately need it.
"Help HEEL Haiti" was created in 2012 post earthquake, which aims to put shoes on the poor and homeless in Haiti.
"Help HEEL Haiti" is to inform and inspire our guests to become more involved. Donations of new and lightly used shoes of ALL AGES will be taken to Haiti and will be passed out among the poor in various areas of the island. This will be documented and filmed so those donated can see for themselves the smiles on the faces of the Haitian people.
As part of this powerful movement, shoe designer's and artists all across South Florida, will showcase their artistically fashioned pieces in benefit to this endeavor.
"Help HEEL Haiti" will be a night of homage to the Haitian culture. Guest will be entertained with the musical beats of Zouk and Compa, fascinated with the decoration of Haitian art, and intrigued by fashion designers of Haitian descent who implement the culture in their collections. A taste of Haiti's delicious cuisines will be served inside.
