Help support Maui Rotary projects while having a blast at the first annual “Chance, Dance and Romance” casino night fundraiser on Saturday, April 17, from 6 to 10 p.m.

A scrumptious buffet dinner will be served, followed by live entertainment featuring Derick Sebastian and Maui’s own Jimmy Mac & the Kool Kats.

Hold ’em, fold ’em and bluff ’em—and all for a good cause. Proceeds from the event will help support Rotary’s educational scholarships for Maui County high school seniors, purchase dictionaries for keiki and aid the victims of disaster through ShelterBoxUSA (visit for more information).

Rotary International is the world’s first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace and eradicate polio.

The main objective of Rotary is service—in the community, in the workplace and throughout the world. Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today’s most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy and violence. They also support programs for youth, educational opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers and other professionals, and vocational and career development.

The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self.” Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community’s business and professional men and women. The world’s Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious and open to all cultures, races and creeds.

Nine of the 48 clubs that make up District 5000 (Hawai‘i) are located on Maui. Maui Rotarians contribute their time, treasure and talent to a variety of worthy causes across Maui County, including the Maui Food Bank, Feed My Sheep, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Maui, Women Helping Women, American Cancer Society—and many more.

So, dust off your dancing shoes, get your best cocktail dress ready and enjoy a night of “Chance, Dance and Romance” on Saturday, April 17. This is guaranteed to be one of Maui’s most exciting events of the year—you can bet on it.

Tickets are $88 per person, and $20 of the ticket price is tax-deductible. Sponsorships are available, as well as “high roller” tables reserved for 10 or more.
