LAHAINA – Nevah Too Late will provide the dance music at the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset’s fourth annual “Go For The Green” St. Patrick’s Day party on Saturday, March 17. Residents and visitors are invited to join at the Molokai Ballroom of the Royal Lahaina Resort in Kaanapali.

Event proceeds will support recycling in West Maui, scholarships to local students and club donations to community nonprofit groups.

“We are thrilled to have Nevah Too Late for our St. Patty’s Day party,” said Joanne Laird, Rotary co-president. “We invite the community to join us as we kick up our heels and have a great time, all for a good cause.”

Nevah Too Late consists of Derek Bal on guitar, Randy Leval on ukulele and Mickey Felipe on bass. All three are born and raised on Maui and bring together the sounds of finger-style guitar, ukulele and bass to cover songs spanning multiple eras and genres with a unique sound. They all sing.

The party will include a no-host bar, dinner buffet, dancing and silent and live auctions. Attendees may purchase tickets in advance for $95 per person ($115 at the door), which includes dinner and two drinks. VIP tables of ten are available for $1,000.

Tickets are available online at www.universe.com/goforthegreen2018.

In related news, the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset is awarding one $2,500 academic scholarship to a graduating senior who lives in West Maui or Molokai and attends a Maui or Molokai high school.

The student should demonstrate superior academic abilities, involvement in school activities and a winning character profile, and must be pursuing a field of study that will benefit the environment.

The scholarship highlights the club’s commitment to support the educational goals of local youth.

“Knowledge is power, and we are thrilled to help a senior student reach his or her educational goals,” said Laird, Youth Service chair.

“We’re pleased to support the education of a local student who will have the opportunity to continue sustainability efforts on Maui well into the future.”

The academic award also reflects the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset’s focus on environmental initiatives, a core mission that is realized through sustainability projects and its “Go Green” Third Saturday Recycling events held monthly at Lahaina Cannery Mall.

The scholarship will be provided in two installments. The first, for half of the scholarship amount, will be dispersed to the college when evidence of enrollment is presented to the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset.

The remaining half of the scholarship will be paid to the recipient’s college when evidence of successful completion of 12 semester hours is presented to the club.

The application deadline is March 31, 2018. To receive a scholarship application, or to learn more about the award, e-mail Laird at mamalrd01@gmail.com or call (808) 757-0981.
