INAUGURAL ART AUCTION BENEFITS CANCER PATIENTS. Four Seasons Resort Maui marries two of its most cherished traditions — promoting local artists and supporting the fight against cancer — with Showcase Under the Stars art auction from 5 to 10 p.m. on the resort’s luxurious grounds in Wailea. Attendees will have an opportunity to bid on creative works donated by more than 45 Maui artists, including painters Lori Koprowski, Kari McCarthy, Melissa Chimera and Jan Kasprzycki as well as sculptor Tim Garcia and photographer Scott Reither. Additional mediums such as glass, mixed media, jewelry, and ceramics will also be represented. Proceeds from the event benefit Pacific Cancer Foundation, Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women & Children and American Cancer Society. Admission to the auction is $50 and includes a meet-and-greet with the artists, live entertainment and hors d’ouevres created by Four Seasons Resort Maui’s culinary team. For tickets and more information, visit or call 891-4100.
