“MAPA (Maui Academy of Performing Arts) has grown into one of the state’s largest performing arts organizations,” says board president Keith Ranney. Their Annual Garden Party Fundraiser—in its 21st year—is their key money-raising event and helps support their inspiring range of educational programs. Attendees can stroll the grounds of the historic Yokouchi Family Estate to the tunes of Moondance as well as Bentley Kalaway, while enjoying “fresh art” being created by local painters and sculptors—those pieces will be auctioned off at the close of the event (in addition to an impressive silent auction). Gourmet offerings from an array of proprietors will be available, as will sippables from event sponsors Hawaii Liquor Superstore. Maximize your greenback with the “Garden Green” program, where every $75 buys you a $100 Garden Green gift certificate, good for redemption at the Garden Shoppe (handmade millinery, plants, garden items and more) or at either auction.
