'Tis the Buy Back the Beach

The office is humming with an especially warm feeling lately. It could be the holidays, but more likely its the excitement over how our upcoming Buy Back the Beach Benefit is coming together. For the 11th year in a row Old Lahaina Luau is hosting the event (insert big applause here!), and this time around they'll be showcasing their amazing family of restaurants. In addition to the traditional luau spread, guests get to sample tastings from Aloha Mixed Plate, Star Noodle, and the brand new Leoda's Kitchen & Pie Shop. Prepare to eat well! Save the Date: January 28, 2012 — Buy your tickets online here.

A true feast for the senses, the night's entertainment includes total "Ahumania" with mistresses of ceremony Joni DeMello and Liz Morales of Ahumanu leading the show. The Old Lahaina Luau dancers will perform and HAPA headlines with a special performance commemorating the 20th anniversary of their first album.

We welcome returning event sponsors Mana Foods and Boeing and our new supporters Skyline EcoAdventures and Sempra Generation.
