Captivating Rhythm and Versatile Artistry
Feel the drumbeat? Maybe not yet, but you'll definitely hear it and feel it if you are at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel on Saturday, October 13th. TAIKOPROJECT will lead off an exciting evening for a great cause at our 11th Annual Evening of Aloha Gala Dinner. Doors will open at 5 pm, and the dinner will begin at 7 pm.
We will once again kick off the evening's program with a salute to the Nisei Veterans of World War II, followed by a sumptuous dinner planned and prepared by master chefs Roy Yamaguchi and Akira Hirose.
Back by popular demand is multiple Grammy-award winning musician and record company owner Daniel Ho. Ho is a musical force unto himself, as he composes songs in English and Hawaiian that feature his versatility on ukulele, slack key guitar, piano and vocals.
Much, much more is planned – including a moving tribute to the 21 Japanese American Medal of Honor recipients, and a perspective from a retired US Army general on the significance of the Nisei soldiers' contribution to our nation's history.
Please make plans to join us at our largest fundraiser of the year, and support our efforts to make a positive impact in the world by sharing the inspirational story of the Nisei soldiers of World War II.
For dinner patrons who want to make it a get-away weekend, we've arranged a special hotel package at the Westin Bonaventure.
Sponsorship, advertising and ticket information is available on our Evening of Aloha website.
