Comedian Ryan Drake will host a concert benefitting a refuge for young women in Haiti at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, April 3 at City Pres, 829 N.W. 13th St.

Founded in 2014 by Oklahoma City native Maria Atkinson, Jasper House Haiti is a nonprofit refuge for young women in Jacmel, Haiti, who have suffered the tragic effects of rape, abuse, HIV/AIDS and prostitution. Jasper House Haiti provides programs and activities that focus on bringing wellness and restoration to the whole person.
"Maria is doing a great thing with Jasper House and I've wanted to help since she started, but outside of just donating money, I didn't know how,” Drake said. “Finally, an opportunity arose for me to do something that I am pretty good at in planning a party to help raise money for her cause. Everyone involved is donating their time and efforts into doing the things they're all good at, to help Jasper House thrive. We assembled one of the best local music lineups possible, booked the most aesthetically beautiful room in Oklahoma City to showcase them, and all the money raised that night will be going directly towards the Jasper House cause.”
Admission is free with a suggested $10 donation to Jasper House Haiti. Must be 21 to enter.
