Montessori Hale o Keiki will host its fourth annual Orchid Ball this Saturday, March 24. The theme this year is "Tinsel Town Nights". Imagine stepping back into 1940's Hollywood--red carpets, glamour, sumptuous food and wine. And don't forget those fabulous clothes. Vintage dress is so appropriate (but not required) for this event. Dig in the back of your closets and come smartly dressed.
This year's event will be held at Gannon's Restaurant in Wailea. What intrigues me about the event this year is that instead of a plate dinner, there will be food stations from some of the best restaurants on Maui--Gannon's, Nick's Fishmarket, Joe's, Sarento's, Hai'imaile General Store, and Son'z at Swan Court. I am going to make sure that my "vintage" has extra space in it with all these delightful choices.
Early registration starts at 5:30 p.m. There will be a silent auction beginning at 6 p.m., with dinner stations opening at 7 p.m. The evening continues with a live auction at 8 p.m. and dancing with music by DJ Dan at 9 p.m. This should be a fun and spectacular evening.
