Haiti fundraiser a lively event; draws drummers, doctor

FALLBROOK – Live Oak Palooza, a fundraiser held June 4 at Live Oak Elementary School to aid Haitian earthquake victims, featured a local doctor who had visited the strife-torn area, and a popular drum circle and other performers.

Dr. Robert Pace, who has provided surgical and orthopedic services in the Fallbrook and Murrieta areas for more than three decades, spoke about an aid mission that he and other area physicians took to Haiti earlier this year.

The family event raised money for the Haiti Endowment Fund, which was launched more than two decades ago by a retired De Luz minister and his wife.

The evening event included food, refreshments and performances by the Fallbrook Drum Circle, the Blue Zone Band and James East and Robert Resto.

A 7.0-magnitude earthquake that rocked Haiti on Jan. 12, as well as numerous major aftershocks, killed more than 150,000 people and left about 1.5 million people homeless.
