Fancy yourself a formidable Monopoly player? If you’re willing to be put to the test, you can help raise money for Maui Food Bank and Habitat For Humanity Maui while playing with other worthy opponents.

The Maui Monopoly Tournament invites the public to this Hasbro-approved tournament from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 18 at The Shops of Wailea Courtyard. Consisting of two, 90-minute rounds leading to a final championship round, this year’s tournament will feature two divisions: a student division for players ages 8 through 17; and an adult division for players 18 years and older.

As of press time, participating celebrities and dignitaries include Meteorologist Malika Dudley, Mike Gerry, big-wave surfer Paige Alms, Hope Chapel’s Executive Pastor Ben Prangnell and “Jack the Terrier” (aka Jack Harper) with his handler.

The competition will be spread out among several tables for the preliminary rounds. A judge will oversee each round and a designated banker will be stationed at each table. The players with the highest accumulated net worth will advance to the championship round with the winners of the final round receiving a trophy and, more importantly, bragging rights.

There will be door prizes raffled off throughout the event. Participation in the tournament is not required to take part in the raffle, but you must be present to win.

There will also be a mobile silent auction. Details and updates will be posted at as well as the Maui Monopoly Event Page on Facebook.

All proceeds from this benefit will go to the Maui Food Bank and Habitat For Humanity Maui.

Registration is $50 per person for both divisions. A Maui Monopoly T-shirt is included with your registration. For more information or to register for the tournament, visit
