McHENRY – Tickets are available for Catholic Assistance Missions' annual Haiti fundraiser.

Touch a Heart in Haiti will be from 6 to 10 p.m. May 3, at the Church of Holy Apostles, 5211 W. Bull Valley Road, McHenry.

Catholic Assistance Missions, or CAM, is a nonprofit charity that works with the people in Despinasse, Haiti.

The all-volunteer organization is actively involved in many projects, including housing construction, a livestock program, and feeding the poor. CAM also runs a school that serves about 250 children, offering them an education, and a warm meal each day. That is often the only meal that child will eat all day.

The May 3 event will feature live music, raffles, a silent auction, cash bar and Haitian artwork and wares for sale. There also will be short informational speeches about CAM's volunteer work in Haiti and the country's current socio-economic conditions.

Ticket prices are $20 and $5 for children younger than 10. The cost includes dinner and dessert. Table sponsorships for $180 for eight guests also are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tickets are available at the Holy Apostles bookstore or by calling 815-578-0975, or emailing CAMforHaiti@gmail.com.
