With your support we raised $9,111 in support of UNICEF's work in Haiti.
Hurricane Matthew — the most brutal Caribbean storm in a decade — devastated Haiti. And, when disaster strikes, children are the most vulnerable.In fact, nearly 900,000 children are menaced by this catastrophe and its dangerous aftermath. Eighty percent of homes in the most affected region have been damaged or destroyed. Nearly 176,000 people are living in shelters. Hundreds of schools are out of commission. Cholera cases are growing daily, making safe, clean water a top priority. But UNICEF can meet children's needs on many fronts — quickly, effectively and efficiently.

The Columbia University Kingsmen were founded in 1948 by request of Dwight Eisenhower, then University President, for that year's Homecoming ceremony. Three years later, at a football game in 1951, Eisenhower told the group, "If you men can get 2,000 others singing with that spirit, I’ll personally pin a medal on each one of you." Since then, the Kingsmen have taken that same spirit to the national stage to become one of the most famous a cappella groups in the United States.
