By Staff | Sep 17, 2009

KAANAPALI — For the fourth year, celebrities from television, entertainment, music and sports will converge on Maui to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and Lahainaluna High School Foundation. 

The Maui Charity Classic on Oct. 24-26 will unite supporters and sponsors for two days of golf at Kaanapali Golf Resort and events at the Royal Lahaina Resort.

The 2008 event raised more than $18,000, and organizers plan to have a stronger year in 2009.

Celebrities expected to return include original member of the Eagles, Don Felder; two-time Super Bowl champion with the San Francisco 49ers, Dwight Hicks; blues legend and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame guitarist Steve Cropper; actor Marc McClure from the “Superman” movies; James “Bonecrusher” Smith, former heavyweight boxing champion; and actor Jim Sikking of “Hill Street Blues.”

The event includes a spectacular, star-studded Charity Dinner and Auction at the Royal Lahaina Resort, including outstanding musical and comedy entertainment, along with a Golf Sponsors Party hosted by Eagle Eye Wine & Olive Ranch of Napa, California, and celebrity Iron Chef Lee Hillson from the famed Royal Palms Resort, Phoenix.

All proceeds go directly to children’s charities on Maui, Lahainaluna High School Athletic Program and Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Research.
