Thank you to everyone who came out to make our Cocktails for a Cause a huge success! Since Hurricane Matthew NOVA Hope for Haiti has raised over $115,000 to help our community of Cavaillon, Haiti recover after the devastation of the storm. We are rebuilding homes, helping the town replant its destroyed crops and repairing the damage our clinic suffered as a result of the hurricane.
NOVA is extremely grateful to Ogilvy and Mather for sponsoring and hosting the event. The room was filled with NOVA friends – new and old. Everyone got a chance to mingle and talk to NOVA volunteers and learn firsthand about what we do – in good times and when challenged with unexpected disasters. Cathy Sellinger, a pediatrician from Children’s Hospital at Montefiore and NOVA volunteer missionary, was part of our October team and provided a first-hand account of what our town and clinic was like immediately following the hurricane.
Below are some pictures from our night – look for updates on our website as we post photos of each home we are rebuilding with the support provided by everyone who contributed to our Hurricane Matthew fund.
