Maui Calls – the MACC’s annual gala fundraiser event – is this Friday, Aug. 8, and the 2014 model promises to deliver more than ever.

The theme for this year’s event is  “Celebrating the Songs of Hawaii,” and scheduled highlights include live and silent auctions, a concert with a surprise musical guest and dancing under the pavilion.

However, we imagine that more than anything you go for the expansive offering of food and drink.

If that’s the case, go ahead and whet your appetite with a sampling of what you can expect.
