The event in 2014...

A sell-out crowd enjoyed a beautiful evening! The show celebrated Na Lani `Eha, the four ali`i composers, with Ku`uipo Kumukahi and the Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame Serenaders and Halau Hawai`i, Kumu Hula Karen Ka`ohulani Aiu.

Patrons honored their favorite ali`i at each table, bought Needs List Lei and bid at our silent and live auctions of unique Hawaiiana.

The event in 2012...

We welcomed the Farden family of Lahaina! The whole family entertained as we honored their beautiful music tradition while raising funds to make history real. We greeted our guests with music, a seated dinner under the trees, a silent auction, a needs list, and much more!
