WIWOʻOLE MAUI BENEFIT CONCERT
(LIVESTREAM) | SATURDAY, AUGUST 19, 2023
A #MauiStrong Benefit Concert Led by Maui’s Celebrated Recording Artists & Hālau
Wiwoʻole in native Hawaiian means ‘fearless, brave, bold, and courageous.’ In this historic occurrence of unprecedented and catastrophic loss, the unifying and healing power of mele (music) has summoned Maui’s celebrated recording artists and hālau to gather for the Wiwoʻole Maui Benefit Concert (Livestream) on Saturday, August 19, 2023 live-streamed from Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort. Wiwoʻole #MauiStrong is dedicated to raising essential disaster relief funds urgently needed to support and sustain the victims of the August 8 Maui wildfires that affected communities across the island and devastated the historic town of Lahaina (traditionally known as Malu'ulu'olele).
Mahalo to everyone who tuned in and watched and donated we were able to raise over 100k!
