Volcano Art Center announces our 18th Annual Love the Arts fundraiser at the Niaulani Campus on Saturday, April 29, 2023, from 4 – 8 pm. This annual gala is our main event to raise funds for Volcano Art Center which allows us to fund classes, exhibits, workshops, and offer the creative arts experience in this uniquely nurturing and inspiring environment.
This year’s theme is “It Takes a Village,” which honors Hawaiian culture with an old-style lūʻau with excellent kau kau and entertainment.
Come join us for the Love The Arts and enjoy ‘ono Hawaiian cuisine, drinks, great local music, and lovely hula performances. We hope you will attend and wear your favorite aloha attire.
Of course, the live and silent auctions are not to be missed, with unique offerings including original artwork, hotel stays, tours, jewelry, and more. Everyone will have an opportunity to bid on artwork, hotel stays, restaurants, local products, services, gift certificates to businesses and attractions.
Each year we ask local artists to contribute their artwork for this event, to be auctioned in order to raise the needed funds to sustain VAC programs and classes. These artists and businesses who give to the event do so with the knowledge that their donation will have a direct impact on the survival of the Art Center. The Volcano Art Center is an integral part of this unique community offering a sense of belonging to those who live and work around it.
As a non-profit organization, VAC looks forward to our community and ʻohana support in our effort to expand the services and facilities at VAC’s Niaulani Campus. A portion of this year’s proceeds will go to the VAC Capital Campaign to bring these plans to fruition.
Tickets $75 / $65 (VAC member)
