THANK YOU, THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who came out last night to “Stand with Haiti” at last night’s benefit.

Above: Austin music legend Ray Benson performed with Kat, noting “obviously, we don’t have the same parents!” Man, that dude is TALL as in TEXAS TALL!

Owner Jeff Courington has been counting the donations he received for Partners in Health and we will post that amount in the days that follow.

Above: Ray and Kat were a tough act to follow but Bruce Robison and Miles Zuniga had the crowd in the palms of their hands.

In case you weren’t able to attend last night, you can still give to Partners in Health directly: just go to the website and you can donate directly.

Above: Kat and Kevin Lovejoy also did a truly moving set. All the musicians donated their time last night for the benefit.

The folks in Haiti really need our help. We’ve chosen Partners in Health as our place to give because they’ve been working on the ground in Haiti for more than 20 years. The concept is simple: health care should be free for everyone.

From all of us at Vino Vino, from the kitchen to the marketing department, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. The folks in Haiti need our help and it was great to see such a great turnout for our benefit event! We love you Austin!
