WESTIN PRINCEVILLE JAZZ & WINE FESTIVAL RAISES OVER $33,000
Proceeds to Benefit Kaua‘i Lifeguard Association, Life’s Bridges
The Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas’ annual Jazz and Wine Festival on September 17 raised a total of more than $33,000 through a silent auction to benefit the Kaua‘i Lifeguard Association (KLA). The resort announces a check will be presented to the KLA at its 4th Wave Celebration for $28,000 on Saturday, October 22. An additional check of $5,000 will be presented to Life’s Bridges following a request from KLA to support the non-profit organization.
The KLA aims to maximize ocean safety in and around Kaua‘i waters through education, training and maintaining high standards of professional and open-water lifesaving practices and techniques. The resort has raised over $120,000 for the Kaua‘i Lifeguard Association through its Jazz & Wine events.
KLA works closely with Life’s Bridges, a volunteer-based organization providing immediate, short-term and long-term bereavement services through the Bridges Emergency Support Team (B.E.S.T.) for those whose family members suddenly pass away. The organization is often called upon to assist during tragic events, such as a visitor or resident drowning.
“We’re proud to have exceeded our fundraising efforts from years’ past to help support the invaluable service of the Kaua‘i Lifeguard Association,” says Denise Wardlow, General Manager of The Westin Princeville. “This year, through the request of the KLA, we have the added pleasure of supporting another worthy cause by benefiting the Life’s Bridges organization.”
The 8th Annual Westin Princeville Jazz and Wine Festival is scheduled for Saturday, September 16, 2017. For more information, visit www.westinprinceville.com.
