‘The Gift for You’ youth event set for Saturday

Olympic volleyball player and Maui resident Annette Lynch shared stories about her experiences as a professional athlete with teens at the 2014 “The Gift of You” event.

Maui Youth & Family Services will host a free event for Maui youths ages 12-18 called “The Gift of You” from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in the student lounge of the University of Hawaii Maui College’s Pilina Building.

There will be live music, inspirational speakers, free food, interactive booths from various community groups, games and giveaways, including a chance to win an iPad.

Confirmed entertainers include world-renowned ukulele player Derick Sebastian and rising singer-songwriter star Anthony Pfluke. Professional windsurfer Levi Siver will be there to share his story.

“This event will truly be one of the most exciting events for Maui teens this year,” said The Gift of You Chair and Arbonne International Executive National Vice President Autumn Shields. “We are excited to celebrate the youth attendees and help them focus on their gifts, abilities, talents and strengths. We want each and every one of them to feel special and get excited about doing productive and positive things in their lives.”

Space is limited, so attendees are asked to register on Eventbrite by searching for The Gift of You. Same-day registrations will also be accepted, and parents are being reminded that this event is for youths only. Funding is provided from the Arbonne Charitable Foundation.
