Vintage Lanikai Gala Feb. 28

Lanikai School is looking for funds to upgrade its classroom technology to 21st-century standards by hosting Vintage Lanikai Wine & Auction Gala at 5:30 p. m. Feb. 28 at Mid Pacific Country Club.

The public elementary charter school has hosted Vintage Lanikai over the last two years, raising more than $16,000 in 2013 to restore its Hawaiian Studies program, and more than $30,000 in 2014 to build an outdoor performing arts stage. This year’s goal is $51,000 to modernize each classroom by adding a large TV, multimedia equipment and audio system.

The evening will feature food, wine tasting, entertainment from Kaiao and an extensive auction, featuring donations from individuals and groups including Mahina Boutique Kailua, Lanikai Jewelry, Pedego Kailua, Buzz’s Original SteakHouse and more.

Tickets cost $55, and the final deadline to purchase them is Feb. 14. Visit To donate silent auction items, email
