Local musicians, physicians and community members will celebrate and support Haiti at a benefit concert at Frontier Café on Saturday, March 13.

Frontier will host concerts by Dark Hollow Bottling Company and the Gumps and a multimedia presentation about a new grassroots medical project forming in Haiti. The presentation and performances coincide with an exhibit of Nathan Broaddus's personal photographs from his trips to Haiti, which will also be on display.

The opportunity for this collaborative event arose as local physicians and artists approached Frontier seeking a way to help raise money and make a difference after Haiti's earthquake. This event was very much inspired by the success of a similar musical fundraiser earlier in the winter that also raised money for efforts in Haiti. Last month, Frontier held a concert with local musicians Tom Porter + Friends to benefit a grassroots organization in concert.

"We often get approached from non-profit groups who are interested in holding events at Frontier," said McCormick. "These benefits are the most exciting because they bring the community together for a greater purpose—in this case, supporting the people and the future of Haiti.

McCormick added that "Our goal for this event is to bring awareness to a positive change taking root in Haiti, to raise money for the project, and to celebrate the spirit of the Haitian people with our local community."

Frontier is holding "Coming Together For Haiti" March 13 from 5 p.m.-10 p.m. There is a $10 cover/donation.
