The community of Hilton Head Island, in collaboration with the Rotary Lowcountry Environmental Club, is pleased to announce the upcoming “Kokua” fundraiser to benefit the people of Maui. Kokua is the Hawaiian word for help. It’s deeper meaning is to extend help to others with no intent of personal gain.

This event will be held at Soundwaves, located at 7 Lagoon Road, Hilton Head Island, SC 29928, on Wednesday, September 6, 2023, 5 to 8pm. The fundraiser will feature a silent auction, LIVE music and mingling, and is open to all members of the community.

“We invite you to join us for an evening of fun and philanthropy as we come together to support those in need. All proceeds from the fundraiser will go directly to aid the people of Maui during this difficult time,” Says Richard Grant, curator for the exhibit. “We encourage attendees to consider making a donation or participating in the silent auction to help us achieve our goal of making a difference in the lives of those affected by recent events.”

Please note that flip-flops and Hawaiian shirts are optional but highly encouraged! We hope to see you there for this important and meaningful event.
