An evening of 1940s Hollywood glamour, dancing, a live and silent auction, and heavenly food from the finest restaurants on Maui in support of MHOK

With 20 years of extraordinary education as South Maui’s only independent school, Montessori Hale O Keiki celebrates this incredible milestone with their biggest fundraising event of the year. On Saturday, March 24th at Gannon’s in Wailea, prepare to step back in time and experience the glamour of 1940s Hollywood and be wined and dined by Maui’s top restaurants. From red carpet arrivals and styled Theater Ladies serving chocolate cigars and popcorn, to the big band music and swing dancers, guests will be treated to a “Tinsel Town Night” they will never forget.

Starting the evening with a glass of wine or cocktail in hand, guests can mingle, take in the vintage atmosphere and shop at the extensive silent auction in support of MHOK. Following the silent auction, the finest chefs of Maui from Gannon’s, Nick’s Fishmarket, Joe’s Bar & Grill, Sarento’s, Hali’imaile General Store and Son’z at Swan Court will delight and inspire with a scrumptious feast. Dinner will be followed by a live auction including a Genuine Scooter Company motorized scooter from Maui Moto, a private chef’s dinner from Chef Bev Gannon and Chef Mike Thompson, and much more. The evening will close on the dance floor with Maui Swing Dancers ready to start the dance party.
