Lanikai Stages Gala For Stage

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

Lanikai Ele­men­tary Pub­lic Char­ter School marks its 50th an­niver­sary Feb. 22 at Vin­tage Lanikai Gala Auc­tion and Wine Tast­ing from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Mid-Pa­cific Coun­try Club.

Pro­ceeds will help fund a badly needed stage for per­form­ing arts and school as­sem­blies. Through­out its half cen­tury, ex­plained PCNC Espie Chap­man, the school has had no place where all stu­dents could meet at the same time — though blue­prints for a stage are as old as the school. Build­ing a stage around the cam­pus banyan tree is the goal for now, she said, as the school ohana works with its law­mak­ers on a per­ma­nent so­lu­tion.

Spon­sored by Buzz’s Orig­i­nal Steak­house and E&J Gallo Win­ery, the gala of­fers heavy pu­pus, wine, beer and an auc­tion with items rang­ing from Dis­ney­land tick­ets and art­work to a Joe Na­math-au­to­graphed foot­ball.

Tick­ets cost $50 un­til Feb. 14. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 266-7844 or visit­tage.

A hoolaulea May 2 will con­clude the school’s golden an­niver­sary, and alumni and for­mer staff are es­pe­cially in­vited to at­tend.
