Royal High Tea Fundraiser Raises $25,000

Maui Cancer Wellness Retreats hosted its first Royal High Tea Fundraiser at Lona Ridge in Wailuku on April 28. The event raised $25,000! This will provide scholarships to 30 cancer survivors to attend the wellness retreat September 20th to September 22nd at Napili Kai Resort.

The 90 guests that were in attendance participated in both a live and silent auction. Entertainment was provided by a harpist and violinist, with the food menu prepared by chef Bev Gannon. Owner of Lona Ridge estate, Leona Wilson, donated the venue for the event.

The retreats are a way to help cancer survivors rejuvenate and focus on wellness and healing. The Maui Cancer Wellness Retreats is a non-profit organization that has been serving Maui County for over 20 years.

Congratulations on the success of your inaugural fundraising event!
