LAKE WORTH — Lake Worth residents were thankful Hurricane Matthew didn’t cause the type of damage and destruction originally forecast.

Those who live in Haiti, however, weren’t as lucky, where the death toll is anywhere from 400 to 900.

On Oct. 22, the city will host “Put A Little Love In Your Heart: Lake Worth Benefit for Haiti” at CJ’s Island Grill on Lake Ave., from noon to midnight.

Two residents, Melissa McCrannels and Karine Albano formed the group Lake Worth Spared; Lake Worth Cares to help. All money raised will go to the Direct Relief charity.

The Lake Worth Sister City Board is also helping out.

Acts scheduled to perform are; Whiskey Varnish, School of Rock, Jumbo Shrimp, SADA, Sunny Side Swing, Mid Shift Blues and Clay Goldstein’s NattyBos Pro Jam.

For more information, call Albano at 561-676-7698 or email solsticehild@me.com
