The fourth Maui Economic Opportunity Abilities Awareness Fair on Friday evening at the Queen Ka‘ahumanu Center connected persons with disabilities to services in the community while promoting better awareness among the able-bodied about living with a disability. There were more than a dozen government, nonprofit and business providers at the event. Door prizes were handed out. The event was put on by the MEO Maui Independent Living Center.
