The benefit was held at Arena, and featured music by DJs Clue, D-Nice, and Jon Quick. Hennessy also got in on the philanthropic action by providing an open bar for the guests.

The organizers of the event sought to not only raise funds and supplies for earthquake victims, but also celebrate the cultural contributions of Haiti through music and art.

"By attending this event [attendees] will become the truest embodiment of the motto inscribed on the Haitian flag: strength through unity."
