Event will support scholarship program

Sep 26, 2017 @ 7:00 am. - 9:00 am.

Vrander Villalba and Andy Baltonado, recent Rotary Career Scholarship awardees, will speak at the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise breakfast meeting at 7 a.m. on Tuesday at the Pioneer Inn. The meeting is open to the public; the $10 fee includes a full breakfast with menu selections.

With support from Rotary Career Scholarships, Villalba is studying auto mechanics and Baltonado is pursuing a career in agriculture. The scholarships are awarded annually by the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise to students pursuing a career outside of the traditional academic college setting.

Funds for the scholarship are raised at the annual Oktoberfest, to be held this year on Friday at the Pioneer Inn with festivities starting at 6 p.m. Authentic German food, beer and the foot-stomping oompah band will be featured. A silent auction with items donated from a variety of businesses help raise funds for the scholarships. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased online at www.lahainasunriserotary.org.
