LOS ANGELES, Feb. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Thursday evening, BOVET 1822 and Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) hosted their inaugural Songs from the Cinema concert at No Name in Los Angeles. The sold-out benefit raised much-needed funds to serve the poorest communities in Haiti with programs in education, healthcare and dignity through the arts.
APJ founder and Academy Award® winning filmmaker Paul Haggis hosted the event, along with co-hosts Maria Bello and Maxwell, who were joined by APJ guests and supporters Jeremy Renner, Petra Němcová, Nicholas Jarecki, Mark Foster, and more.
Songs From The Cinema celebrated best-loved music from movies, curated by music legend Jackson Browne. Performers included Rita Wilson, Jeff Bridges, Jack Black, Jenny Lewis, Moby, Catero Colbert, Jonathan Wilson, Judith Owen, Paul Beaubrun, The Living Sisters, The Songbirds and The Haden Triplets.
"Since 2013, our partnership with Artists for Peace and Justice continues to uphold the same valued and respected qualities of the house of BOVET. We are proud that all donations since 2013 go straight to supporting APJ's Academy in Haiti. We are proud also to support a cause that shares our commitment to excellence through education," said Pascal Raffy.
As APJ's long-term strategic partner, BOVET 1822's ongoing generosity and extraordinary yearly commitment of one million USD since 2013, makes the organization's work possible and enables the charity to give 100% of every donation directly to its programs. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, where a severe lack of affordable education and healthcare perpetuates the cycle of extreme poverty. APJ is committed to long-term, sustainable development in direct partnership with the Haitian people.
