Continuing its commitment to Elvis Presley’s legacy of giving, Burn’n Love will host two “Elvis Lives” kama‘āina nights to benefit two essential charities—the Maui Food Bank and Wounded Warriors Project—on Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 17 and 18, at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10 (with valid Hawai‘i ID) and kids 12 and under are free with a paying adult.

A $5 donation from each special ticket sold will be split between Maui Food Bank and Wounded Warriors Project.

Wounded Warrior Project advocate Terry Fator, star of the number one show in Las Vegas and NBC’s America’s Got Talent season two winner, will be on Maui next week and is scheduled to attend one of the benefit nights as a special audience guest. Comedian Fator donates 100% of proceeds from his show’s retail merchandise to the organization.

Wounded Warriors is a nonprofit organization. Its mission is to foster successful, well-adjusted wounded service members through customized assistance and awareness programs.

“In 1961, Elvis hosted a benefit concert at Pearl Harbor and donated proceeds to help build a memorial to the USS Arizona, and even paid for his own ticket,” said Mike Kattawar, executive producer of Burn’n Love. “He supported our military service men and women, and we hope to do the same with contributions to Wounded Warriors Project.”

Burn’n Love on Maui has supported Maui Food Bank since the show opened in December 2013 and through its nightly donations and special fundraising events, has helped feed over 50,000 meals to Maui county residents so far.

Hawai‘i residents (with Hawaii ID) may purchase these specially priced tickets, normally $60 and higher, by calling Maui Theatre at (808) 856-7900 [2]. Customers must mention “Elvis Lives” when reserving seats and are encouraged to reserve seats early as the shows are expected to sell out.

Regularly, Burn’n Love runs every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 7:30pm at the Maui Theatre. Tickets range in price from $59.99 to $109.99 for an all-access pass. For more information, go online [3].
