Forbidden Island was fantastic last night--then again when is it not--and the event was a success for sure.

The Marie cocktail was delish-tart and sweet at the same time....the bands were fantastic....the raffle was great (yay for me I won the Oasis 07 mug THANKS Otto!) and everyone was in a great mood coming together for a great cause.

Thanks to the organizers--Mike and the staff at Forbidden Island were gracious and fun hosts for the event--and I think quite a bit of money was raised by looking at the prices on some of the silent auction items.

Even though many people may have only met Marie a few times or in some cases not at all it was great to see so many people turn out on somewhat short notice to show their support last night.

I hope whatever the event raised helps alleviate some of the financial burdens of the situation.

Much love to JP and Marie from the Ohana up North!

A huge MAHALO to all who attended the Marie King Benefit last night! We managed to raise well over $1,000 for our dear friend and had loads of fun in the process. The bands were awesome, the prizes were terrific and the aloha spirit was in full swing.
A HUGE shout-out to the those that donated their craft and time and made this happen. Aloha!

Thanks to Suzanne for passing my card/donation on to JP & Marie. Sorry I couldn't make it last night....bet it was a blast. Luckily I was able to suck down 4 Monkeypods and some appetizers with friends on Tuesday.

Anyone got pictures of the event?
