For many years, Sara Wasserman’s Music Heals International has hung its hat on two certainties: the organization brings music and musicians to the children of Haiti and globally to inspire achievement, resiliency, and creativity – and they throw one heck of a benefit party.

The latter, for obvious reasons, has not happened lately.

But the organization, founded by Sara Wasserman in 2010 following Haiti’s devastating earthquake, when her countless visits to the Port-au-Prince community of Delmas 32, showed Wasserman the unmistakable impact of music as Haiti began to heal and rebuild. MHI uses music as a tool to help children cope and find joy after traumatic uprooting.  

In lieu of one of its massive in-person events, Music Heals International is hosting a special virtual fundraiser on May 8 at 4pm PT. Dubbed Truffle Shuffle, the event is in honor of Mother’s Day. Virtual attendees will learn how to cook Black Truffle Risotto from Michelin-trained chefs and sip on a wine pairing from Truchard Vineyards—all while supporting Music Heals International students in Haiti and India as they engage, achieve, and thrive through the power of music.
