So many people's lives have been touched by cancer. More money for research is always needed, but money to help cancer patients and their families are also needed. The American Cancer Society is addressing this issue by raising funds with their first Hawaii Cattle Baron's Ball on April 16, 2011 at the Mauna Lani Hotel and Bungalows.
Wear your paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) best, to enjoy ono grinds (delicious food), drinks, gaming, an auction, and a luminaria ceromony beginning at 5:30 pm.
"Come in boots, jeans, a cowboy hat and have a great time," said Colucci. "This is a dedicated party with a purpose, where guests can dress in their Western best to celebrate the Big Island's paniolo heritage and to help fight back against a disease that has taken too many lives."
Tickets are $150, with $65 of that price being tax deductible, Colucci said. Tables of eight or 10 people can also be reserved. For more information or to purchase tickets, call Joy Peters at 895-1805.

Double Brush will also be donating a candle set for the auction, and donating half of the retail price for Hawaiian candle favors. Each participant will be able to take home one of our special Hawaiian soy candle as a keepsake of this special occasion.
