Months later, the ripples from Japan’s massive quake continue to be felt in waves of Aloha. On Saturday May 21, Hard Rock Café in Lahaina will host a Jam for Japan benefit concert organized by the thoughtful students of the Maui Preparatory Academy’s National Honor Students. From 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., enjoy live music, order some food and drinks, and participate in the day’s silent auction.
Bring your rainbow’d Hawaii Driver’s License and prove you’re Kama’aina to receive a 20% discount on food and non-alcoholic beverages at Hard Rock Cafe. For-charity items are not included in any discounts.
This rockin’ cafe is seriously philanthropically inclined. Earlier this month, on May 6, Hard Rock had another benefit concert for Japan. Their Reggae Bash included talented musicians from Maui, Oahu and Kauai. Portions of the ticket sales went directly to Japan relief efforts.
All profits from this Saturday’s event will be donated to the Japan Disaster Relief Fund. Suggested donation is $5.00. For more information, visit www.alohatojapan.com. Jam for Japan T-shirts are on sale now for a green Andrew Jackson, $20, at www.cafepress.com/AlohatoJapan.
