Proceeds from the vote will go to local nonprofit organization including: Friends of the Children’s Justice Center of Maui, Hospice Maui, Ka Hale a Ke Ola Homeless Resource Centers, Maui Friends of the Library, Maui Humane Society, Pacific Cancer Foundation and Pono Academy.
Head of School Maureen Madden said, “We are so excited here at Seabury Hall to be hosting this community event to kick-off the holiday season. Our entire school community is working together by decorating our campus in a joyous ‘neighborhood’ competition to raise money for those on Maui who need support. We hope that this will be an opportunity for all of us to be reminded how important it is to spread joy while giving back to the community.”
