Auction Tickets Selling Fast - Donations & Volunteers Needed

Aloha Island School 'Ohana

We are just over three weeks away from Speakeasy Club, our 36th Annual Gala Auction, and the excitement is palpable!

Tickets are selling fast! If you're planning on attending, be sure to make your reservation ASAP. Call us at 246-0233, stop by the office, or purchase tickets and tables of ten online at Quantities are limited - act soon!

Donations of new and like-new items are still needed. Popular items include jewelry, specialty food and spirits, and unique children's items. We respectfully ask that donations be brought in as soon as possible. This helps us plan ahead for display space, bid sheets, and transportation to (and from) the ballroom. Because we will be in a new venue this year, it is especially important for us to have as much time as possible to make adjustments as needed. If you have something to donate, please call Deatri Nakea at 246-0233 or send an email to A Donor Commitment Form is attached to this email for your convenience.

Volunteers will be needed for the following:
  • Transportation of items from Island School to the Hyatt on Friday, March 27 at 8:00 AM (trucks and muscles are helpful!) 
  • Set up of the ballroom on Saturday morning, March 28
  • Breakdown of the ballroom on Sunday morning, March 29, beginning at 8:00 a.m. (Trucks and muscles are needed!) A small team of volunteers is needed at Island School, and a larger team is needed at the Hyatt.
To volunteer, please call Daryl Edwards at 246-0233 or send an email to

We are grateful to everyone for their enthusiastic support! This fundraiser would not be possible without our dedicated parent volunteers. Funds raised support tuition aid and operating costs, and help us to keep tuition as low as possible for all Island School families.

Mahalo! We look forward to an amazing event.
