Lang, John Currin, Rachel Feinstein, Naomi Watts, Zac Posen,
Christopher Niquet, Griffin Dunne, Edie Falco and David Colbert, MD host
a benefit and auction to raise funds for Haitians who suffered loss of limb
during the January earthquake.
“I came back from Haiti believing that one of the most important things we
can do is to provide the prosthetics and related services that people who
were injured will need to function again. If each of us does one little thing, it
can add up to a very big thing, so we are raising money for a prosthetics
clinic in Port au Prince that we know will make a big difference”
- Dr. David Colbert during his first visit to Haiti after the earthquake
