The lovely Aoife Barry of Sweet Oblivion and RTE 2XM has arranged a fantastic line-up to raise money for Haiti. A fundraising gig and bake sale are to take place on Thursday, 4th of February at Dublin's Twisted Pepper. Tickets are €10 at the door, with each penny of that going to GOAL's Haitian Relief Fund. The bake sale starts at 7 p.m. and is sure to be delicious. There's also due to be a raffle on the night.
Aoife had this to say: “Like everyone in Ireland, I was shocked to hear about the devastation caused by the earthquake in Haiti, which is one of the world’s poorest countries. I wanted to do something to help GOAL do its work in Haiti and thought that a gig would be a great way to bring the music community together so we could all do our bit to help. The cake sale element is a way of boosting funds on the night but also for showcasing the skills of local amateur bakers and I’ve been stunned with the reaction so far. Everyone has been hugely positive and I would love if we raised a substantial amount of money for GOAL. I’d like to thank everyone who has offered to volunteer or help in any way with the gig, and hope to see a great crowd there on the night.”
