Hui o Ko'olaupoko is proud to announce our partnership with the Kailua Full Moon Concert Series to present a concert on Friday, June 21 from 5 to 8:30 PM! Performing are Ledward Kaapana, Mike Kaawa and Saloon Pilots.
These concerts were developed to provide free ($5 suggested donation), family-style events based around live music, performing arts, sustainability and community involvement. All proceeds from the upcoming June and September concerts will benefit the environmental restoration work of HOK.
Community volunteers are needed to make this event successful. There are plenty of volunteer opportunities available for individuals and groups, so please consider being part of a new Kailua summertime tradition and supporting a great organization. Click here to pick your volunteer job & shift!
