Princeville, HI - Ready for a fun-raiser? One that is more than a silent auction? Kauai’s Zonta Club of Hanalei Foundation will host its 2nd Annual Charity Auction and Costume Party Hollywood Then & Now… on October 25, 2008.
In 2007, the premiere event resulted in approximately 250 attendees arriving in full costume regalia. That cast of characters was amazing! And, while having a great time, more than $20,000 in proceeds were netted to benefit the YWCA Girlz Zone program and scholarships for young women.
The 2008 event will take place at the Prince Clubhouse in Princeville (home of the Princeville Health Club & Spa) between 6:30pm and 11:00pm (doors open at 6pm). It's an opportunity for everyone to dress up as their favorite starlet or leading man. Last year, guests arrived as Jean Harlow, Betty Boop, Charlie Chaplin, Indiana Jones, Cruella de Ville and many more. Once again, the 2008 proceeds will go toward the YWCA Girlz Zone program and scholarships for young women.
This year promises to hold even more fun in store. Tickets are priced at $75/person and include dinner, dancing to Vic and The Victims, a live auction, silent auction, belly dancing, prizes for best costumes, photo opportunities and more. Just some of the auction items being offered include "An Instant Wine Cellar," a dinner for 8 prepared in your home by chef Michael Moore - both big hits last year – a gift certificate good for ground passes (for 2 people) to The Players Championship Tournament at TPC Sawgrass and 3 nights of lodging with 2 spa treatments at the Lodge Torrey Pines in La Jolla, CA.
Costumes are recommended, but not required and masks are available for a nominal donation. Due to limited seating at the Prince Clubhouse, attendees are encouraged to buy their tickets early. Adults only please. To purchase your tickets, please call Mindy Smith at (808) 652-3223 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org
