MIAMI —The Haitian American Nurses Association (HANA) hosted its ninth annual “Cultural Night” at Miami Dade College earlier this month to raise funds for communities in Haiti and in Immokalee and Fort Myers, Florida.

The Oct. 1 event held at the Miami Dade College North Campus featured a rendition of the Eddie Murphy hit movie “Coming to America” – with a “Haitian twist” – written by Pastor Naphis Petit-Bel. Other highlights included a dance routine by Manoucheka Luma, a poem performed by Poetic Lakay, and a fashion show by Mimi’s BoutiQ.
