MEO fundraising Gala is set for April 30.

Maui Economic Opportunity’s fundraising Gala ‘We Are ‘Ohana’, featuring Grammy winning slack key guitarist Jeff Peterson with a special appearance by Amy Hānaiali‘i, will be held Saturday, April 30, at the King Kamehameha Golf Club.

The event, which runs from 5 to 9 p.m., seeks to raise funds for MEO’s more than 40 programs that support low income residents, kupuna, youths, immigrants and persons with disabilities. The 57-year-old nonprofit Community Action Partnership, part of a nationwide anti-poverty network, will use funds raised to support under-funded programs and to help people in need who fall between the cracks of grant programs.

The evening will feature the performances by Peterson and Hānaiali‘i, testimonials from residents in need whose lives were helped by MEO, script prize drawings and live auction and other activities. Items for the drawing and auction are being accepted.

Event is sold out.

To obtain tickets, to donate items to the drawing and auction and for more information, contact Executive Assistant Lee Imada by phone at (808) 243-4306 or by email at
