HALO’s main cultural event is our annual Gala which is an opportunity for members and guests to let their hair down. Our Gala is a celebration of the Haitian Culture and always carries a theme of that culture. It will take place in Saturday, May 22nd. It includes art exhibits by well-known Haitian artists as well as up and coming artists, cocktail hour with typical Haitian fare such as akra, and live music. The main musical entertainment for the evening in the past has included Sweet Micky and his band, and even Wyclef Jean who joined Micky on stage at our first gala for a one-hour jam session. Special recognition awards are given to strong supporters and generous sponsors of HALO. Our Gala is always a sight to see and the talk of the town long after it’s over.
