10 families were recipients of $5000 thanks to the Lahaina Strong Benefit Concert held on October 21st. 8 of the 10 families were present at Lowe’s to receive their gifts as well as 10% off purchases.
Entertainers that donated their time included Willie K, Amy Hanaialii, Ekolu, Damon Williams, Na Wai Eha, Nuff Sedd, Piilani Arias, John Cruz and Matagi. The concert organizers partnered up with Maui United Way to obtain donations. Other donations included hotel stays for silent auction and food donations. The community really came together not only with donations but volunteering time.
The Maui Fire Department determined the fire was fueled by winds caused by Hurricane Lane. In total 21 homes and 27 vehicles were destroyed. Families who received money raised by the benefit did not have insurance or other financial assistance at their disposal.
The true meaning of aloha was shown during the communities time in need. Mahalo to all!
