A silent auction to raise funds for school programs at Laupahoehoe Community Public Charter School will be hosted during the ninth-annual Laupahoehoe Music and Cultural Festival on Saturday at Laupahoehoe Point Beach Park.
The auction features a variety of goods and services generously donated by island businesses and community members. There’s something for every budget, from local honey, business gift certificates and original artwork, to a load of cinder from D&D Trucking and a 400-pound steer from Big Island Dairy.
Concert-goers can view items and place bids at the large beach park pavilion from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Winners will be announced after bidding is closed, and can pay for their items on-site, or if not present, will be notified after the concert.
Donations of items and services for the auction are still being accepted.
To make a tax-deductible donation, please contact Holly Young at 937-1226.
Tickets to the Music Festival can be purchased at Bascially Books, Hilo Guitars &Ukuleles, Hilo Sharks Coffee Shop and Hilo &Kona Music Exchange, as well as from Back to the ’50s Highway Fountain and Sakado Store in Laupahoehoe, and Taro Patch and Gramma’s Kitchen in Honokaa.
