Please buy a $10 ticket to Ohana Ho’opakele’s Ho’olaulea May 26

Aloha kakou,

Please purchase a $10 ticket to ‘Ohana Ho’opakele’s Ho’olaulea on Saturday, May 26th from 10AM – 5PM at Maku’u Farmers Market.  This is a benefit for ‘Ohana Ho’opakele, a non-profit organization, to build a model Pu’uhonua as an alternative to prison.  A ticket includes food and great entertainment.  There will be meat and vegetarian stew and rice.  Music includes Keli’i “Skippy” Ioane, Kaliko Guys, Diana Aki, Ben Kaili & Friends, George and Keoki Kahumoku, Damon Williams, Terri Napeahi with Howard Pe`a, and more.

The Hawaii State Legislature just passed a bill for a Pu’uhonua/Wellness Center which is now before the Governor for signing. (See below.) We’ll be explaining more about the Pu’uhonua at the Ho’olaulea and we hope you will help in this important effort.  I’ll be glad to mail tickets to you.  Send a check (made out to Ohana Ho’opakele)  to my address below.  Or you can purchase tickets at Papa Mu Gallery at the Prince Kuhio Plaza.  I’ll also have them at our Friday Peace Vigil 3:30-5PM at Hilo’s downtown Post Office.
A limited amount of tickets will be available at the gate but we want to sell advanced tickets to get a good estimate for food preparations.
You can also call me at 966-7622, or call Uncle Sam at 937-7193 or Ron at 345-9688, and Papa Mu Gallery 959-1101 for tickets.
Please help pass the word about this event and help sell tickets. We can also use help distributing flyers.

Mahalo for your support and solidarity for justice and peace.
