Rockin' for Haiti

Ratio presents the Red Cross with the $414 they raised at their show Saturday night.

Over the last two weeks millions of people have shown their compassion and support for those affected by the Haiti earthquakes, and this past Saturday a few more were added to the list. Local teen band Ratio, a classic rock cover band, raised $414 during a show to benefit Haiti at the Rudyard Kipling.

Although the band knew they were rallying for a good cause, they were even more touched by the disaster when an audience member announced her new niece was flying in from Haiti at that very moment, ending a three-year adoption wait.

Holly Stewart, Ratio lead singer and guitarist, said after the announcement by the soon-to-be aunt, the benefit turned into a celebration.
