Electric violinist Kat V entertained guests as they stepped into Galleria Marchetti (825 W. Erie) to raise funds for Haiti’s homeless children April 7. Emceed by J Niice of B96’s “The J Show” and Marco Foster, the event featured passed cocktails topped with hibiscus, Haiti’s national flower, and a performance by Joffrey Ballet dancers Matthew Adamczyk and Abigail Simon. The second annual black-tie gala raised nearly $60,000 for Avanse’s Outreach Center, which protects children in Cité Soleil, Haiti.
