SAVE THE DATE!  Sunday September 14th, 4 – 7PM:

Volcano Winery Harvest Festival/Benefit for Volcano School

The Volcano Winery is celebrating the grape harvest with a festival of food, music and wine.  This year’s Harvest Festival will be a benefit to support STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) programs at VSAS.  The festivities will take place on Sunday, September 14th from 4 – 7 PM at the Volcano Winery on Pi’I Mauna Drive.  Music will be provided by Grammy Award winner Keoki Kahumoku and Friends and will include performances by some of our talented VSAS students.  To purchase tickets call the Volcano Winery at 967-7772.  Tickets are $40.00.  Ticket sales are limited and always sell out, so don’t delay getting yours!  We will also be selling student artwork, school t-shirts and cookbooks and will have a dessert raffle to raise additional funds for our school.  Volunteers are needed to help with set up (including picking up tables & chairs from the Cooper Center), clean up, dessert donations for the raffle, and the VSAS sales booth.  Please contact Kim Miller, 985-7055, vsas.miller@gmail.com for more information and if you can help with this event.  Mahalo to Volcano Winery for hosting and to Volcano House and other local businesses for donating the food for this charitable event to raise funds for Volcano School.
