‘Ulalena at Maui Theatre kicks off a new “Kamaʻāina Kokua” campaign today, a special promotion that aims to raise funds for three Maui United Way agencies.

The program starts today and runs through March 26, and offers Hawaiʻi residents an option of purchasing Gold Seating tickets for $20 instead of the regular $69.99 retail price. The offer is good on Wednesdays only.

For each ticket sold, the company will donate $5 to one of the following non-profits of their choice: Women Helping Women, the Boys & Girls Club of Maui, or the American Red Cross.

“We try and help raise funds for various community groups at least a few times a year. We do an annual food drive for Maui Food Bank and reach out to schools and other educational institutions as much as we can throughout the year,” said Dennis Preussler, director of sales & marketing at Maui Theatre in a company press release.


“Our show showcases the true essence of ‘ohana, which in Hawaiian culture reaches beyond just our immediate blood-related relatives and into the community. It is important for us to give back to our Maui ‘ohana, who has supported us for over 14 years now,” said Preussler.


Maui United Way Chief Professional Officer, Laksmi Abraham said the funds will help the non-profit organization, which raises and invests donations in 40 health and human services partner agencies.
