APSU Men and Women’s Basketball
Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay Athletics will donate all proceeds from tickets sold at the door at the women’s and men’s basketball games on January 20th and 22nd to a project in northern Haiti. This project, initially developed by an Austin Peay professor with support from the university, has received further funding from the Clarksville Sunrise Rotary Club.
The purpose of the project is to provide material and logistical support to a group of about 200 coffee and cocoa bean farmers in Tibouk, Haiti, who are trying to raise the quality of their products so as to be able to export them to the United States and other countries. A small group of Rotary members will travel to Haiti later this year to continue work on this project.

The pictures and news footage coming out of Haiti are often hard to watch. The 7.0-magnitude earthquake that struck the island-nation on Jan. 12 killed an estimated 200,000 people, but many more have suffered and died in the following days due to insufficient medical personnel and equipment.
The situation is overwhelming for the doctors and nurses who’ve managed to make it into the area, but on Sunday, Jan. 31, the Clarksville community will get the opportunity to directly support medical teams working in the devastated region through Clarksville Responds: Haiti Relief Efforts for the Visitation Hospital Foundation, a city-wide concert and telethon.
Throughout the day, some of the area’s top bands and musicians will perform for the public at three locations – The First Church of the Nazarene on Warfield Boulevard, Einstein Bros. Bagels at the Austin Peay State University Morgan University Center and the Music/Mass Communication Building’s Concert Hall on the APSU campus. «Read the rest of this article»
