Turks and Caicos First Lady LisaRaye will dedicate her upcoming birthday celebration to raise funds for Turks and Caicos residents who are victims of Hurricane Ike.
On Sunday, Sept. 7, Hurricane Ike roared through Grand Turk island with category 4 winds causing extensive damage to about 80% of the homes. Hundreds of residents took refuge in shelters and many were left homeless.
"They got hit really, really bad," Premier Michael Misick said Sunday morning. "A lot of people have lost their house, and we will have to see what we can do to accommodate them."
Misick's wife LisaRaye who is separated from her husband and living in California, is doing her part to help the residents. According to LisaRaye's publicist Lynn Jeter, LisaRaye will celebrate her birthday at The Area Nightclub, 643 N. La Cienega Blvd. West Hollywood, on Tuesday, September 23.
In lieu of gifts, LisaRaye plans to ask guests to donate to the cause.
Confirmed celebrity guests include Wendy Raquel Robinson, John Sally, Sanaa Lathan, Elise Neal, Stacy Dash, Brandy, Malik Yoba, Kenya Moore, Alex Thomas, Tamela Jones, Kim Whitley, Judge Mathis and more.
All media are welcome to attend the party.
