Update Feb. 18, 2020:
Aloha, Alaka’i O Kaua’i Charter School Family and Supporters,
It is with sadness and great respect for Uncle Willie K that we must inform you the Benefit Concert for Alaka’i O Kaua’i, which was scheduled for February 22, has been canceled. Uncle Willie K is facing some health issues, so we are allowing him time to rest and sending him our best from all of us at Alaka’i O Kaua’i.
Mahalo for your love for Willie!
The Alaka’i O Kaua’i Charter School Team
The world-renowned and Hawaii’s BELOVED LIVING LEGEND Uncle Willie K & Band will perform a benefit concert for Alaka`i O Kaua`i Charter School. This one-night-only special event will be held at Kauai Community College Performing Arts Center in Lihue, Hawaii, on the island of Kauai on Saturday, February 22, 2020. Doors will open at 7:45 p.m. General tickets are $55, but for Alaka`i O Kaua`i families, the price is $45. Preferred seats are $75.
The preferred seats are almost gone, and we don’t start sales until Monday at noon, but people have been buying preferred seats on EventBrite. The Performing Arts Center offers about 400 general seats and only 160 preferred seats. Former Mayor Bernard Carvalho will be the emcee. Our kids will be able to do a number or two before Kimberly Hope (the preshow) comes onstage!
Here is the committee that helped pulled this together so quickly:
- Mark Perriello, Executive Director, Kauai Chamber of Commerce
- Marynel Valenzuela: owner, InkSpot Printing
- Cyndi Ayonon: Executive Assistant to past Mayor Carvalho and all-around go-to person
- Ron Wiey: Kong Radio
- Jeff Fishman: many hats and Go Kauai website
- Kaleo Carvalho: Kauai Mayor’s Executive Protocol Officer
- Nicola Sherrill and Rafael Tapia: Alaka`i O Kaua`i School Board Members
- Jonelle Godfrey: iLEAD Schools Development (school’s nonprofit and advisor to Alaka`i O Kaua`i Board)
- Cara Brosnius: Alaka`i O Kaua`i Parent Leader
