Mothers’ Brunch May 9 At KEY

KEY Project will serve its sixth annual Mothers & Others Benefit Brunch from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 9 — the day before Mother’s Day — offering a gourmet menu from its own commercial kitchen and local entertainment in a country-style program that all mothers (and other mom role models) can enjoy without venturing far from home.

Presented by KEY’s Kipuka Cafe with kitchen manager and chef Ken Weir, brunch in the pavilion will have hot and cold food stations highlighted by Eggs Benedict with imu-roasted kalua pig, prime rib, sushi, shrimp tempura, omelets, salads, hot and cold drinks, potato with taro, ulu and uala; homemade corned beef hash, herb scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, mini muffins, croissants and more.

Entertaining the crowd will be Hoku award-winner Kawika Kahiapo. Also planned are raffle drawings and door prizes.

Tickets cost $50 and must be reserved soon, because of limited space. Each table seats 10 people. For reservations and more details, call 239-5777 or visit

Proceeds from the gala event will support KEY’s mission to uplift and build a self-reliant community of all ages from Kualoa to He‘eia. The multi-purpose community center is located at 47-200 Waihee Road, just mauka of Kahaluu Regional Park.
