Kahiau Auction Gala for Financial Aid Set for March 8
Join us for Kahiau, our 9th annual auction gala on March 8, 2014 at the Fairmont Orchid, Hawaii. All proceeds from the event go to financial aid at the Parker School. The Hawaiian word kahiau means “to give generously from the heart,” and every year Parker puts on the gala so our ‘ohana can come together in a fun way to provide educational opportunity for children in our community.
Attendees will enjoy a sit-down dinner and have the opportunity to bid on hundreds of exciting silent and live auction items such as: six nights at the Four Seasons in Bali; a fishing adventure in Alaska; a Marriott stay in Costa Rica with partial airfare included; golf at the exclusive Nanea course; original paintings by Martha Greenwell, Harry Wishard, Emrich Nicholson, Joshua W. Miles and many other artists; private guitar lessons with slack-key master John Keawe; private pupu party for 20 catered by Lisa Vann of The Fish and The Hog; a three-night stay at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa packaged with an exclusive tour of Hirsch Vineyards on the Sonoma Coast; jewelry, health and spa packages, fine dining experiences, and much more. Please visit our Kahiau web page to learn more and to preview items in our online auction catalog. Do check the catalog frequently as we continually add new items. If you are unable to attend the event but would like to bid on items by proxy, please contact the Advancement Office (contact information below).
Guests can also participate in activities at the event such as “First Bidder Frenzy” in which they will have the opportunity to win a prize (last year’s prize was an overnight stay at the Four Seasons Hualalai), and “Bubbly & Bling,” for the chance to receive elegant, high-end, custom-made jewelry by Simply for Fun jewelry company.
The Fairmont Orchid is generously offering discounted room rates starting at $189 per night for Kahiau attendees. Availability is limited, so as soon as you RSVP for the event, contact the Fairmont Orchid at 808-885-2000 to make your reservation. Parker School is grateful to the Fairmont Orchid and all of the generous sponsors, donors and attendees who make our auction event possible. Remember, over 50 percent of Parker families receive financial aid, and Kahiau, our largest fundraiser of the year, is key in making this possible. We look forward to seeing you there!
