“Serving to end hunger,” is the slogan for the first annual tennis tournament, festival and gala dinner at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel.

On October 20 and 21st, the hotel partners with the Food Basket Inc., to raise money and awareness in the fight against hunger. This free event encourages everyone to attend and enjoy the day while helping the community.

There will be local art, food and craft booths, jewelry vendors and music from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Keiki will work off some energy in the bouncy castles, giggle their way through the face painting and slide into more fun.
