Is this happening on the private yacht of a billionaire financier off the coast of Monte Carlo, or on a cruise ship anchored on the deep blue Mediterranean Sea in the south of France?

In announcing the fundraiser, Cameron Center Executive Director Cesar Gaxiola said, "As we prepare for our 40th anniversary in the coming year, the Cameron Center continues to provide an affordable home to numerous critically important nonprofit/community agencies who serve over 30,000 Maui families every year.
"While the Cameron Center has received public funding to help in revitalizing our facilities, for nearly two generations, we have basically relied on the generosity of committed local companies and the people of Maui for support," he added.
