November @ the MACC
We kick off the holiday season with Thanksgiving tomorrow, so it's the perfect time to say MAHALO, and give thanks to each and every one of you for the support you’ve given to the Maui Arts & Cultural Center this year.

As I think back over the many individual contributions and group efforts this year - all have made such a difference to the quality of life on Maui. Your support to the MACC is support of the arts and education - and this does make a difference in our community! Our founding chairman, Pundy Yokouchi, put it this way:

The arts are education. They lift up the human spirit, and help us become better people.

Thank you to our loyal members and generous donors... to our business sponsors and partners … to the government agencies and private foundations that help support us... to our staff and volunteers.  

Everything that happens @ the MACC would not be possible without ALL OF YOU as a part of the whole ... all involved in making hopes, dreams, and inspiration come to reality.

Feeling thankful,
Art Vento, President & CEO
E mahalo kākou, i ka mea loa‘a
Let us be thankful for what we have
— Mary Kawena Pukui, Ōlelo No̒eau

We can even count on them for entertainment! That's board member Honey Bun Haynes waving a cheery hello to all in the photo below, with Board Chairman Jimmy Haynes in back, and Maui Calls committee person Judy Bisgard on the right. Usually all three wear their “Committee” hats, but they all had their “strummin’” hats on for this year’s ‘Ukulele Festival! 

Just wanna have fun?
