This Thursday, Oct. 3, The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise is hosting their second annual Oktoberfest celebration.

Held in the historic Pioneer Inn from 6 to 9 p.m., attendees can anticipate an authentic German buffet, festive music, dancing from The Oompah Band and a silent auction.

The event will kick-start festivities which will continue through Halloween.

The Rotary Club states that their goal is to increase their budget in order to better serve the community, including Relay for Life, the Maui Food Bank, various student and vocational scholarships, the Lahaina tutoring program, and the Lahaina annual school supplies drive. In addition, the club plans to provide every third grader in Maui county with a free dictionary.


In a letter, Lahaina Sunrise Rotary Club President Anne Biedel stated, “with additional resources from your donations, The Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunrise can continue to develop programs such as; subsidizing meals at the local schools; stipends for high school graduates wishing to attend vocational trade schools or college; various monetary donations to numerous non-profit organizations; and many notable community projects that directly benefit Lahaina Town and the community at large.


“Should you wish to make a contribution to our event and/or silent auction you will be directly assisting in all of our clubs success and efforts. Your name will be displayed in our promotional material.”

Tickets are $50 per person.
