There’s a Kokua Kahilu event coming up Sunday, October 28, at the Kahilu Theater in Waimea. Cultural historian Danny “Kaniela” Akaka and friends will offer an evening of stories and music at the Kahilu Theatre. A benefit for the theater, the event will include a silent auction, and refreshments will be available for purchase. As with all of Akaka’s “talk story” events, his guests that evening will be a surprise to the audience.
This Kokua Kahilu event is organized by the Kahilu Theatre Board of Directors. Proceeds from the fundraiser will support new vision for Kahilu as a community hub for arts, entertainment and education.
The event will start at 4 p.m. Cost to attend is $25 per adult and $10 per child age10 and under. Tickets are available by calling 885-6868 or visiting the box office between 9 a.m. and noon, Monday through Friday. Early ticket buyers will be provided premiere seating for the event.
