At an exclusive Beverly Hills fundraiser at the home of billionaire Ron Burkle, Lindsay Lohan, Mark Wahlberg, Busta Rhymes, Jeremy Piven, Anthony Kiedis, Flea and many other stars contributed funds and met with Unik Ernst, the founder of the non-profit organization Edeyo, which built a school and ran nutritional programs for children in Port-Au-Prince prior to the horrific earthquake.

In an emotional speech, Unik shared his love for his native country with the A-list crowd of supporters.  He revealed the heartbreaking news that the earthquake completely destroyed the school that Edeyo built for 300 students, and told the crowd that thanks to the funds raised Wednesday, the school will be rebuilt.
