Haiti fundraiser at Leary Traveler tonight

Tonight is the fundraiser to help send Ballardite Tracey Higdon back to Haiti to help with the non-profit Friends of the Children of Haiti (FOTCOH).

Higdon is on the left with a line of incoming patients behind her.

As we previously wrote, Higdon volunteered at the medical clinic last year long before the January earthquake. While there, she will manage the repair and re-painting of the medical clinic used by FOTCOH. The ten-year-old building is one of the last standing clinics in the region and Higdon says it will soon deteriorate if it is not properly sealed and repainted.

“A blitz of patients,” Higdon says.

Her goal is to raise $6,000 which would cover her travel, supplies, and hire labor in Haiti. Higdon knows the team of workers she will hire and tells us that each one of them has lost their home.

Tracy isn’t the only one who could benefit from tonight’s event. There will be raffle prizes donated by local businesses including:
-Two night stay at the 4-star Edgewater Hotel
-Free 1-month memberships to the LA Fitness in Ballard
-Paint from Miller Paint in Ballard
