The Nanakuli High School wrestling team needs the public's help to participate in an upcoming tournament and make repairs to its gymnasium.
The public is invited to the black-tie event, "Come Fly With Us" on Wednesday, Mar. 16 at the JW Marriott Ihilani Resort and Spa's Ocean Ballroom.
The wrestling team hopes to raise $20,000 to cover the costs of the upcoming Maui Invitational Tournament and repair the school's leaky gym roof.
"About $4,000 dollars are needed to take the wrestling team to Maui for the tournament. We also would like to make much needed repairs to our gym's roof, which leaks when it rains," Nanakuli High School wrestling coach Aika Makaula said.
The gala will feature live entertainment from Sean Na'auao, B.E.T., I. Mihana and the Nanakuli Performing Arts Center.
Tickets are $80 per person and corporate tables begin at $1,000.
Celebrity Tuxedo, one of the event sponsors, will offer tuxedo rentals from $49. Ten dollars of the rental will be donated to the Nanakuli Athletic Department.
Monetary donations will also be accepted. Please make checks payable to: Nanakuli Athletic Department, 89-980 Nanakuli Avenue, Waianae, HI 96792, ATTN: Coach Aika.
