BENEFITING: VISIONS MADE VIABLE
EVENT DATE: May 16, 2010
Binghimon,(aka Patrick White) is doing a fundraiser at Cafe' Paradiso on Sunday May 16th from 7 till 10 p.m.
There will a Caribbean Dinner (chicken and vegetarian) served and a set of music featuring the Binghi Boppa Band.
The event is to satisfy legal expenses from his recent trial.
The courts have informed him that if these expenses aren't met by June he will be cited for contempt of court, be sent to jail again and will lose his license.
The authorities have also informed him that if he satisfies these expenses he will be set free from probation 16 months early.
His probation term has included 17 raids by the police on his home where he, his home and belongings are searched and he's given random urinalysis and breathalyzers. The raids continue.
Though he was swiftly acquitted at trial, he lost his home, deposits (rental, Alliant, Mediacom etc.), and all cash on hand. He was subsequently charged $3900 for legal expenses in spite of the fact that he had a public defender. He has $2586 left to pay.
Binghimon has been working with a number of church groups, non governmental agencies, community development organizations, non profit organizations and universities to build a sustainable community in the West Indies based on wind and solar energy. He is working with companies to install turbines on two thousand acres of land to help irrigate properties that will benefit the local population in Jamaica where there is over 70% unemployment.
He is working with Mum students, the University of West Indies and the Jamaican School of Agriculture to introduce Perma -culture, Bio intensive and sustainable farming practices in order to alleviate unemployment, poverty and hunger in the St Thomas, St. Elizabeth, and St Ann parishes.
He seeks to attend the first Board of Directors meeting during the first week of July at Runaway Bay Jamaica but is hindered only by these legal costs and is prohibited from leaving Jefferson County until these needs are met.
The Tickets are $25/ $30 with food - $50 per couple w/food.
Any donation of $50 or more will receive a gift of a CD of Binghimon's upcoming CD release “Binghimon Burning”
