Maui Economic Development Board to hold annual Ke Alahele Education Fund Dinner on August 19th

Jun 20, 2023

In light of the recent tragic Maui fires and the devastating impacts on our families, businesses, and community; MEDB has made the decision to postpone our August 19 Ke Alahele Education fundraiser. Our priority at this time is to stand together in support of those affected by this tragedy and extend our collective efforts towards recovery. We will reschedule the event when appropriate to do so. Mahalo for your understanding!

Maui Economic Development Board, Inc. (MEDB) announces the return of their highly anticipated Ke Alahele Education Fund Benefit Dinner & Auction, themed “Pathways to Our Future.” The event will take place on Saturday, August 19, 2023, at the Wailea Beach Resort–Marriott, Maui. The evening will commence with a reception and silent auction at 4:30 pm, followed by dinner at 6 pm.

This year’s event will celebrate the remarkable accomplishments of students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields. With an estimated attendance of 400 individuals, this evening presents a unique opportunity for companies and individuals to showcase their support for the future of our youth and the community.
