Hawaiian Islands Land Trust Buy Back The Beach Benefit Luau
The Hawaiian Islands Land Trust is an organization that was created out of four separate conservation organizations in Hawaii. In January 2011, The Kauai Public Land Trust, Oahu Land Trust, Hawaii Island Land Trust and Maui Coastal Land Trust merged into a statewide conservation organization. The goal of the trust is to preserve and protect the natural and cultural treasures of the Hawaiian Islands. On Maui, they have preserved tracts of land from Waihee, to Spreckelsville, to Kipahulu, to Ulupalakua to Kapalua. The Maui Coastal Land Trust has used the Luau as their big annual fundraiser for ten years. They are continuing the tradition into its 11th year under the new Hawaii Islands Land Trust. This year’s Buy Back The Beach Luau is scheduled for Saturday Night, January 28th.
As always, the Buy Back The Beach Luau promises to be a great event. Mistresses of Ceremony Joni DeMello and Liz Morales of Ahumanu will guide attendees through a celebration of the bounty of Hawai‘i culminating in a private concert by HAPA. Luau food will be provided via Old Lahaina Luau, Aloha Mixed Plate, Star Noodle and Leoda’s Kitchen. In addition to the entertainment, there are a number of impressive auction items available including an Afternoon with U.S. Poet Laureate William S Merwin, A Hike in The Cloud Forest of Waikamoi, A visit to the Haleakala Observatory, and a five night/six day stay in Napa Valley.
The fun starts tomorrow at 5:00 PM. Tickets for the event are $150. They may still be purchased online or via phone at (808) 244-5263. This is a great opportunity to enjoy good food, good music and help preserve our beautiful Maui Landscape.
