Over 1,500 attendees of all ages and 90-plus volunteers supported the Big Island’s terminally and chronically ill keiki at A Dream Come True’s All You Can Eat Ice Cream Party fundraiser on Sunday, Oct. 16, at the Aunty Sally’s Luau Hale in Hilo.
The event included live entertainment, health screening, keiki ID, keiki games, face painting, airbrush tattoo painting and lucky number drawings throughout the event.
