Dressed in matching red t-shirts under the sprinkling rain, Aka’ula School students eagerly served platters of cake as a sweet finale for attendees of the school’s fundraiser at Hotel Molokai last Saturday evening.
The lavish event, attended by over one hundred guests, featured dinner, a silent auction, and a live auction. Luxury auction items up for bid included a skydiving trip and a resort vacation to Aruba or Mexico.
According to Aka’ula School teacher Dara Lukonen, the purpose of the fundraiser was to raise money for student scholarships.
“We want any child who wants to go to our school to be able to do so,” said Lukonen.
Aka’ula School is an independent school in Kualapu’u for grades five to eight.
