Mahalo Nui Loa!

Mahalo Nui Loa means thank you very much!. And we mean it! What a magical evening it was during our LuWow fundrasier on Saturday at Earthscapes Garden Room in Palm Harbor.

To Barri, Mike, Kelly and Karen at Earthscapes ... you gave us a place for a "Night on the Islands" to happen in Florida! We will never forget how special it was to be able to gather in your magical garden atmosphere. Mahalo Nui Loa!

To Spunky Spirits' Lori McCarthy and crew - you poured some wonderful fun!  Mahalo Nui Loa!

To all our amazing volunteers who helped organize, helped set up, helped run the event, and helped tear down ... Mahalo Nui Loa!

Heather McGuire, you rocked the spreadsheets, phone calls and emails! Mahalo Nui Loa!

Mahalo Nui Loa to Brady's Backyard Barbeque in Safety Harbor, and chef Eileen for food yumminess! Thank you to all who helped put it on our plates, too.

Mahalo Nui Loa to Premier Brewery for rum donations and Dunedin Brewery for the beer!

To our DJ, Sarah Mcadoo, and to all who danced ... Mahalo Nui Loa!

Frankie Ingo, thank you for the fun dance moves and performance! Jen Holloway, thank you for being the emcee for our live auction ... Mahalo Nui Loa!

And we can't imagine a better performance east of the Islands! Mahalo Nui Loa to Donna Marie's School of Dance for a mesmerizing hula show. You managed to transport us all to Hawaii for the evening!

There were also many, many of you who donated your amazing talents through art, get-aways, beverage and food certificates, experiences, and talent which we were able to auction. We raised some money for SHAMc and the wonderful, generous folks who bid on those items went away so happy (and we love them for bidding and purchasing the auction items!) Mahalo Nui Loa!

We are so so grateful to you all - to the people who helped make it happen, and to all the people who came out for the fun. You are why SHAMc is moving forward. You are the reason it's all coming together!

Mahalo Nui Loa! from Todd and Kiaralinda
