Last Minute Christmas Shopping
A silent auction offered Molokai Ferry tickets, some clothes, and a weekend getaway at a luxury hotel. The lucky winner of the getaway auction will experience two nights and two fine-dining dinners at The Kahala Hotel and Resort in Honolulu, a five-diamond resort. And the bid started at $640, nearly half the price of the package value.
Those who came in hungry could stuff themselves with a large menu offered by a variety of vendors. All they needed was a healthy appetite to savor a short-rib plate, sushi, lau lau, chili bowl, musubi, ahi poke, or kim-chee crab. If there was any room for dessert, then there were brownies, lollipops, energy bars, mochi, and chocolate chip, walnut or mac nut cookies.
Mahalo to the Ho`olehua Homestead Association for helping Molokai’s future college students. Also, mahalo to those who helped organize the bazaar, especially to Winona Ka`awa, who did a great job in taking charge of the event after the association’s president, Ochie Bush, could not attend due to unexpected circumstances.
