Candidates and officeholders are invited to purchase an informational table at the 52nd Kupuna Aloha Luncheon on Saturday, July 27, at the Grand Wailea.

The event is organized by Maui Economic Opportunity in partnership with the Maui County Planning and Coordinating Council and runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The cost of the informational table is $200 and includes one meal ticket. Additional meal tickets are $55 each. The money raised will help kupuna clubs defray the cost of attending the luncheon and the entertainment.

Last year, about 460 kupuna with most from senior clubs island wide attended the gathering. Many arrived on MEO buses.

The Kupuna Advocates of the Year – Ruth Griffith of Kaunoa Senior Services and longtime MEO Board Member Adele Rugg – will be recognized. There also will be entertainment by Nuff Sedd, door prizes, a lunch buffet and other activities.

Applications to become a vendor may be obtained by contacting MEO Executive Assistant Lee Imada by email at [email protected] or by phone at (808)242-4306.

Payments must be received by MEO no later than July 8.
