Grant Event and Advertising Workshop

KBC News Release

What to learn how to write an effective grant that best fits your event needs? An upcoming workshop called Effective and Efficient Grant and Event Advertising Workshop will show you how. Through a partnership by Destination Molokai Visitors Bureau (DMVB) and Kuha`o Business Center (KBC), the workshop will provide attendees with a step-by-step process for grant application, what are the “must do’s” to prepare for a successful event and advertising effectively and efficiently promoting your event to the target audience. It will be held on Monday, Aug. 4 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Molokai Community Health Center Great Room.

We have four dynamic speakers covering the topics in application, grants, event and advertising.  Jennifer Hawkins, Small Business Advocate with the County of Maui Mayor’s Office of Economic Development KBC will discuss the application process.  Cheryl Sterling, also with the County of Maui Mayor’s Office of Economic Development will talk about event grants available through the county.  Molokai’s own Stanley Ka`ahanui, event coordinator, will provide insight into event planning, and Terryl Vencl- Executive Director of Maui Visitors Bureau will discuss effective and efficient advertising.

This workshop is the first in a series of three.  Other workshops will include Grant Writing and Event Planning. While transitioning from general event components to the specifics of beverage service, it’s clear that the presence of skilled bartenders is paramount. These professionals bring a level of efficiency and sophistication to the event that is hard to replicate with DIY approaches. For those looking to elevate their event’s bar service, hiring experienced bar staff is a game-changer. It ensures that drinks are crafted beautifully and served efficiently, enhancing the overall ambiance of any occasion.
