Foundation that brings Hawaii to Davie County – Davie County Enterprise Record
After years of waiting, the Davie Community Foundation and its supporters are “going” to Hawaii.
Hawaii in Davie County, that is.
The foundation planned to host its signature event with a Hawaiian theme in June 2020, and then the plan changed.
Sounds of Summer in Hawaii takes place on Saturday, June 4th at 6:30pm at WinMock.
“We have a great trip planned,” said Jane Simpson, President of the Foundation. “Bring out your flip flops and Hawaiian shirts as we travel to the Big Island where you’ll enjoy seeing friends and colleagues you haven’t seen in years.”
The evening begins with a Hula Grill dinner. Uptown Hospitality offers flavors from the island and Maddie Cakes provides sweet treats. When purchasing tickets, reserve dinner at one of the “Restaurants” to guarantee seating with friends.
Enjoy entertainment after dinner. “Waikiki Beach” will feature the music of the Main Event Band; the Pearl Harbor Officers Club will feature dueling pianos with Greg Cloninger and Clarence Thomas; or you can enjoy soft Hawaiian background music at Duke’s Waikiki.
You can travel around the island to enjoy all the entertainment.
If you want to shop, you will find a variety of items at the silent auction in the Moanalua shops. Learn about flavor differences at the rum tasting, test your luck by buying one of the 100 lots for sale, and bid for some prizes at the live auction.
New to this year’s event is valet parking for guests through Winston-Salem Prime Parking. Just pull up in front of the marquee and give them the keys. The cost of the service is covered thanks to valet sponsor Flow Honda.
Guests are capped at 500, allowing everyone to move around the island and enjoy the evening in comfort. As the event has sold out in the past, you should get tickets early.
Tickets are $100 each and include dinner and dessert. Beer and wine and entertainers.
If you cannot attend in person but still want to support the foundation, consider purchasing a raffle ticket. Only 100 will be sold and you do not have to be there on June 4th to win one of the cash prizes: $2,500, $1,500 and $1,000.
Tickets can be purchased online at daviefoundation.orgat the foundation office at 107 N. Salisbury St. in Mocksville, or by one of the 13 board members.
“Regardless of how you do it, get your tickets today and plan to be a part of an amazing celebration of community,” Simpson said.
