The KLA First Wave Celebration was an outstanding success. Held on October 9, 2011 at Kauai’s Kilohana Plantation Luau Pavailion the over 1,100 attendees were treated to a concert by Taj Mahal, Donavon Frankenreiter, and John Cruz. The festivities were bolstered by the comedy of Augie T, Frank De Lima, Andy Bumatai, Tina Marie, and Dickie Chang. Live and silent auctions and a prize donation drawing augmented the fundraising activities.
The event, coupled with the generous support of the sponsors and private donations raised sufficient funds for the Kauai Lifeguard Association to acquire three ATVs and four Waverunners to augment their rescue efforts.
