Our Community: Helping Nonprofits at the Maui Fair
The 94th Annual Maui Fair’s theme this year was “A Timeless Tradition”, and the Fair is certainly an institution on Maui. Held October 6-9, 2016, almost 100,000 people attended and watched a parade with marching bands and floats, ate ono local food, enjoyed kiddie rides and games, watched and listened to local musicians and artists, checked out the livestock and poultry contests, horticultural tent and much more. As in past years, MSM team members helped their favorite non-profits raise money for worthy causes.
FETTUCCINI ALFREDO vs BBQ PULLED PORK: A VICTORY FOR MAUI’S FOODIES
Managing Partner Bill McKeon, President of the Baldwin High School Project Graduation foundation, spear headed their food booth, which raised money for the largest Project Graduation event on Maui. Serving Fettuccine Alfredo with Garlic Bread prepared by Executive Chef Tylun Pang of the luxury Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui resort, Bill has worked closely with Project Grad and other community leaders for the last six years to support Project Graduation’s mission of helping young men and women make good choices and keeping them safe on graduation night and during the graduation season.
Legal Assistant Peter Hume joined the Mana’o Radio booth, dishing up BBQ pulled pork plates and sandwiches. Proceeds will go to Mana’o Radio’s capital improvement fund, which is currently aiming to improve the signal on the West Side with a booster antenna. Mana’o Radio (91.7FM and streaming on manaoradio.com) is all-volunteer staffed, is commercial-free, and was voted Maui’s #1 radio station by the 2016 annual Maui Time readers’ poll. You can hear “Pistol Pete” as a substitute DJ on Mana’o Radio, where he loves to serve up his own recipe of audio morsels for the Maui community.
