Denver’s very own Synthetic Elements Along with many other Local Artists including Lola Black, Vegas Crimes, Battleship Agenda, with special guests Nathen Maxwell & Rich Ross, held a benefit concert on February 5th at the Gothic Theater in order to raise money for Haiti.
All proceeds made will be donated to Oxfam America, a humanitarian organization currently on the ground in Haiti, delivering water and sanitation services to tens of thousands of people in need.
The goal of this event was to increase Denver’s awareness of the Haiti tragedy through music and donations from a silent auction. The bands offered to donate all profits made from their merchandise sales for the evening as a sign of their support to those in Haiti who have been through so much!. In addition, the Gothic Theater, Synthetic Elements, and The Denver Chophouse...Sing Sing Dueling Piano Bar intend to donate one dollar each per every ticket sold.
All proceeds that were made during the auction will go directly to the Haiti relief work sponsored by Oxfam America; no profits will be made. For questions regarding Oxfam America, please visit them online at oxfamamerica.org
