Aka`ula Invites Donors to Fly
By Victoria J. Newberry, Head of School
Each year Aka`ula School families raise money to fund the school’s financial aid program by hosting signature events on Moloka`i, Maui and Oahu. This year Moloka`i Calls Oahu will be held at the Pacific Aviation Museum on May 8, 2010, from 6:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. The evening will include heavy pupu, entertainment, silent auction, movies in the museum theater, a chance to try your hand at a flight simulator, and more. Above all, we promise it will be Molokai style.
We invite you to join us for a night of 1940s inspired fun while supporting educational choice and a quality-learning environment for an ethnically and economically diverse Molokai student population in grades five through eight. There are several ways you may help: purchase an “Enlisted” man’s seat for $50 each; purchase an “Enlisted” table of eight for $400. We’ll hold the table with a
reserved sign for your party; purchase a reserved “Officers” seat for $100. Your ticket will include two drink coupons and a Molokai “goodie” bag; purchase a reserved “Officers” table of eight for $800. This will give you and your party reserved VIP seating as well as two drink coupons and a Molokai “goodie” bag for each person at your table; make a cash donation; donate to either the live or silent auction. The donation can be an item such as a set of dishes, an MP3 player, or a work of art. It can also be a certificate for a service such as a hotel stay, surf lesson, dinner, or haircut.
All proceeds and gifts will directly benefit the school’s financial aid program and they will be listed in the event program. Aka`ula School is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and all donations are therefore tax deductable. We are now able to take on line reservations at our school web site; reservations are due by May 1.
We know there are many worthy causes deserving of your support. On behalf of the entire Aka`ula `Ohana, thank you for considering ours. We look forward to seeing you on May 8.
