On Sunday, October 8, 2017, Family Programs Hawaii will be celebrating more than 30 years of legacy for foster children and families in Hawaii by hosting the first ever “Feast in the Field for Kids in Foster Care” event at Kualoa Ranch.
Feast in the Field will be a dinner located on one of the highest plateaus on the Kualoa Ranch lands with spectacular views of the ocean and mountains. Chef James Aptakin, Executive Chef at Turtle Bay Resort, and a former foster child himself, is providing a spectacular menu that highlights the very best farm to table experience from Hawaii’s wonderful local farms and ranches. We will be offering carefully selected wines to match the menu, and both live entertainment and signature cocktails will get the evening started. The event will also support a “zero landfill” green policy and use all natural leaf and biodegradable bamboo serving dishes for each table, and centerpieces of organically grown herbs.
Performing during cocktail hour will be Big Island grown, Na Hoku Hanohano award winner, Kimie Miner. With her island sounds and songs like Bottom of a Rainbow and more recently Bamboo, Kimie will serenade us with songs we love and new music from her upcoming album.
Family Programs Hawaii provides services to prevent children from entering foster care, support children and families involved in the foster care system and transition emancipating youth out of foster care.
The direct cost of critical services for these children and the families who care for them has increased in recent years, while resources have not. In order to fill that gap, we have developed what we hope you will find to be a unique and exciting event. Hope to see you there!
