It has been five years since the Maui Aids Foundation has hosted Mardi Gras Maui. So it seems only fitting that it returns this coming weekend with the theme, "We're Back!"
It also returns to the King Kamehameha Golf Club where the event kicks off with a Champagne Reception for VIP ticket holders and sponsors at 7 p.m. At 8 p.m. all General Admission tickets join for the Art Show, cocktails, food, and yes, lots and lots of dancing at this party.
Artists featured during the 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. art show will include: Chasity Cadaoas, Jamie Clark, Erica Danielle Franz, Michael Guerriero, James Hanlon II, Michael Horton, Yohne Marks, Kim Mosley, Kevin Omuro, Jennifer Owen, Kolea Schonwalter, Sidney Yee and many others.
Cee Cee will emcee and there will be special performances by the Maui Roller Girls and Girly Show. Then dance the night away to the music of Men in Black II, AstroRaph and CIA.
This is Mardi Gras, so prizes will be awarded for the best costume! Get creative.
The mission of the Maui Aids Foundation is this:
- To stop the spread of HIV infection and AIDS by raising public awareness and understanding.
