Pukalani Community Association will put on a fundraiser that should be festive and unique for Upcountry.

The night of fun benefitting both Pukalani Elementary School and King Kekaulike High School will commence from 3 to 7 p.m. at Pukalani Country Club. The cost to attend is $2 per adult and free for children 12 and younger.

“We have decided to have an Electric Golf Cart Parade, and I think it’s a first for the island,” says Donna Clayton, president of the Pukalani Community Association. “It will be a lot of fun with 20 carts decorated in different themes.”

Other attractions at the event will include a special visit by Santa Claus, keiki games and activities, a craft and gift fair, live music and entertainment and the Cookie Contest hosted by Lala Sweets.

“We’ll feature foods from the schools,” says Clayton. “They pay a booth entry fee, and they keep all that they make. Kalama School will make chow fun, and they are working with the Flying Saucer food people from the Maui Fair.”

Pukalani Elementary will do pulled pork sliders. Food trucks will be Pele’s Woodfire Pizza, Dope BBQ, Al’s BBQ Pit, Grandpa Joe’s, Cymz Sweet Kre8tionz, which just won first prize in the Pitch! contest at Maui Food Innovation Center. Owners Cymbree Kailehu and Glen Fevella will purvey their unique bite-sized decadent tarts with flavors of lilikoi, sweet potato and more.

“Live music will be provided by the duo of Kevin Mason and Julie Getty. They will sing from 3 to 5 p.m., then everybody will move from the Country Club to the ninth fairway at the golf course for the Golf Cart Parade,” Clayton adds.
