The show proceeded with Marjory Sheba acknowledging the people who contributed to the work delivered such as Daniel Oberti of Oberti Eye wear , Soeurette Michel attorney at law, Johnson Napoleon of Azure College, benefiting peace love international governed by miss haiti universe 2011 Anedie Azael and represented by Stephane Achille.
