This Saturday I’ll be live Tweeting, Instagram-ing and Facebook-ing my adventures at the Imua Family Services Fantasia Ball, taking place at the Hyatt Regency in beautiful Kaanapali. (you can follow along via the hashtag #ImuaBall)
I was very honored to be asked to be part of the social media team for this year’s Imua Ball. It’s not only one of, if not THE most, fancy and fashionable events on Maui every year, but it’s also for an incredibly wonderful cause that is near and dear to me as a mama.
Imua Family Services is the ONLY organization focused on helping children with special needs – on Maui and Lanai – in the earliest years of their lives. Helping Maui’s keiki since 1947, it continues to serve more than 3,000 children and their families each year with things such as low birth weight, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, expressive language delays, visual or hearing impairments, autism or other developmental concerns.
This Saturday’s Fantasia Ball specifically supports the programs that provide these direct services to Maui’s children.
If on Maui, you can join in the fun too! Here’s the skinny – there are two ways to participate…
The evening starts at 6 p.m. in the Hyatt’s grand ballroom with pop up boutiques such as Paia Pearl and Maui Hue (swoon!), a silent auction like none other, and beverages from Maui’s own Ocean Vodka. Dinner and Couture Fashion show featuring Monarrez Collection from Chicago and University of Hawai’i Maui College’s Fashion Technology Program to follow.
To top off the night, everyone is invited to the Fantasia After Dark dance party with DJ Del Sol and specialty drinks from Ocean Vodka.
Pssst – can’t make it for the Ball but want to dance? You can buy a ticket to the After Dark Party a la carte!
The entire night is glam – not Hawaiian shirt and slippahs gals, but stilettos and maybe some sparkle – yup…right here on Maui!
And of course, if you aren’t on island or can’t join us you can donate and learn more about the Imua Foundation here.
Remember to also follow the fun on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram – #ImuaBall #FantasiaAfterDark.
“See” you there!
