Vintage Lanikai

Parents, teachers and community members showed their support for Lanikai Elementary Public Charter School Feb. 23 at “Vintage Lanikai.” The wine tasting and auction benefit gala was held at Mid Pacific Country Club, where more than 200 guests bid on goods, services and artwork donated by businesses and individuals within the community. Ed Noh, school director, explained the special appeal of the evening: raising enough funds to bring back a year-round Hawaiian studies program. The evening’s sponsors were Gallo Family Vineyards, Twin Island Clothing and Bob’s Pizza. Parents, teachers and community members raised more than $15,000 for the school.
