Project Edeline for Haiti

"Thousands of Americans have tried to help Haiti overcome the impact of its devastating earthquake, and we were happy to help the La Jolla community participate in a meaningful way." - Host Michelle Ciccarelli Lerach

Every once in a while, you hear a story so positive and poignant, that it changes your life.

The story of Edeline Felizor, who survived the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, is inspiring at the least. Crushed by a building, Edeline suffered a broken neck, five fractured vertebrae and horrific pain for days.

Long story short, Edeline was dug out, and eventually connected to Dr. Lee Rice and physical therapist Stephanie Hoffman of La Jolla.

Through Hoffman and Dr. Rice's volunteer efforts, Edeline is happily recovering and very happily determined to truly give back.

To raise awareness for Haiti and Project Edeline, a fundraiser was held October 16th, 2011 at the cliffside home of Michelle and Bill Lerach.

"Thousands of Americans have tried to help Haiti overcome the impact of its devastating earthquake, and we were happy to help the La Jolla community participate in a meaningful way," said Michelle Ciccarelli Lerach, hostess of the event.  "Edeline and her determination to help rebuild the school that collapsed on her - taking the lives of many and nearly ending hers - profoundly impacts everyone who meets her, and I think all of us who participated in the event are the better for it."

The Lerach's hired Chef Jeff Stanko to create island staples like codfish fritters known as 'Accra,' classic remoulade, spiced pork known as 'Griot,' with mashed plantains and chorizo.

Snake Oil Cocktail's mixologist Ian Ward created custom pineapple based cocktails, and Cups of La Jolla, owned by Michelle Lerach, offered mini passion fruit-infused cupcakes.

All for a great cause. Awareness and funds raised will help Edeline on her mission.

The purpose of the event was Project Edeline. Stephanie Hoffman explains. "Project Edeline" is about rebuilding both a school and dreams in Haiti. When the 2010 earthquake destroyed lives, building and dreams, Edeline Felizor, who was severely injured and trapped in her collapsed building,  committed her new life to helping others in Haiti to rebuild theirs. The school will serve one of the poorest communities in Haiti and help give kids who would otherwise be left in the streets, a chance to better their lives by attending school. The project is run by "Youth Without Borders".  For more info on Project Edeline, go to"

Dr. Lee Rice added this. "It is incredibly inspiring to witness her journey and to see her transformation from a victim of such a devastating injury to a spearheading leader for educating so many underprivileged children in Haiti.  Please count me among those who have been both privileged to participate in Edeline's recovery and committed to helping her realize her dream of building the first school.  Both you and she are a blessing in my life.  I'm a very grateful person and want you to know how much my involvement has contributed to my own happiness and personal growth."

Among the guests there were Angie and Rusty Preisendorfer, Kerri and Drew Smith, Florencia Gomez Gerbi and Fernando Aguerre, and Sue Wagener.
