Spike Gjerde of Woodberry Kitchen and Bryan Voltaggio of Volt are lending their support to a Wednesday night benefit for Up From Under, a project for building homes in Haiti.
The Up From Under benefit dinner and silent action, which is being held at Washington, D.C.'s Long View Gallery on Wednesday, will help raise awareness and funding to build homes for the homeless and those devastated by the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. The Volt staff is preparing is preparing food for the benefit, alongside Gjerde, R.J. Copper of Rogue 24, Matt Hill of Charlie Palmer Steakhouse and Mike Isabella of Graffiato. The food sounds good, and so does the music -- the event's disc jockeys are Thievery Corporation's Eric Hilton and US Royalty's John Thomley. Sounds like the place to be in D.C. on Wednesday. Tickets are $125 and can be purchased here.
