HONOLULU PULSE STAFF / firstname.lastname@example.org
The Ala Moana Farmer’s Market is holding a Hurricane Sandy awareness concert tomorrow, Nov. 13, for victims of the recent storm.
“When disaster strikes, human nature compels us to help,” said market organizer Pamela Boyar. “Living in Hawaii, we are well aware of the devastation a hurricane can cause, and we are reaching out to help those in need on the east coast.”
The market is partnering with the American Red Cross, which will have a booth set up to offer information on how market-goers can help. The market’s 70-seat cafe will host the concert, which includes scheduled appearances by Lopaka Brown & Alika Kalauli III, Paul Izac & Seeds of Love, Hanalei Bishop, Jeff Says No! and Ernie Cruz, Jr.
Admission to the Ala Moana Farmer’s Market is free. A variety of vendors and food artisans will also be on hand, offering baked goods, wood-fired pizza, flowers, locally grown produce and more from 4 to 7 p.m. at Ala Moana Center’s 2nd level parking lot near Sears, 1450 Ala Moana Blvd.
