ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA (Great Falls Connection) - Rock to Remember Haiti raises money for victims of the earthquake.

On a day when several high school proms were taking place, many students gathered at the Old Fire House in McLean for a much different occasion. Five local bands donated their time to put on a concert, Rock to Remember Haiti, in order to raise awareness and donations for victims of the earthquake that took place in Haiti this past January.

Langley High School sophomore, Sheerin Tehrani, organized the event with the hopes of reminding the local community of the ongoing tragedy in Haiti.

“Many of us donated and helped out right after the earthquake, but a lot of us forgot about Haiti after the initial shock wore off,” Sheerin said. “I just feel thankful to live life so comfortably, and I think that it’s our moral duty to help out in any way we can.”

Students from all over the area attended, including two teenagers, Tess Paoletta and Chandra Che, from National Cathedral School in Washington, D.C.

“What happened in Haiti is so devastating and it’s important to try and help the victims,” said Tess. “This event shows how one person can make a difference.”

The bands that played included Ivy Rose, Mad Brenda, Jetpack Atlantic, Life Without Stripes and Meet Me In The Green. Their performances helped raise money for victims of the earthquake that hit Haiti.

All proceeds will go to the Americares Foundation. Americares was chosen in particular due to the fact that it gives 98 percent of the donations it collects to help victims.
