Products made by the nonprofit Lokelani ʻOhana will be sold at a fundraising concert at the Maui Coffee Attic in Wailuku on July 23. Grammy winner George Kahumoku will be among the entertainers.

Multiple Grammy winner George Kahumoku will be entertaining at a fundraiser at the Maui Coffee Attic on Saturday, July 23, to help the nonprofit Lokelani ʻOhana expand its services to adults with disabilities.

The event takes place from 6 to 8 p.m.

ʻOhana executive director Christina Chang said the goal is to complete construction of a 1,650-foot educational workshop building at its farm in Waiheʻe. The building would be used for farm classes and as a place for Hawaiʻi creative arts.

The workshop building, Nā No’eau O Lokelani, will include ADA ramps and mounters. It will also provide classes for people in the community and those with disabilities, according to Chang.

Some of the people involved in the project have children with special needs, including Down syndrome, autism, and cerebral palsy.
