Rotary fund-raiserstirs tiny bubbles

Okay, a beer and champagne-tasting party might not be a typical way of raising

money for the benefit of children. But that dichotomy can be overlooked in

light of the Po’ipu Rotary Club’s admirable intentions.

The club’s

International Beer and Champagne festival will feature sampling of exotic

libations from Asia, Central America and Europe. International food will also

be part of the event Sept. 23 in Kapa’a. And it’s all for a good cause: The

ongoing humanitarian service of Rotary. In the case of the Po’ipu club, that

includes raising more than $20,000 this year for playground equipment at Koloa

School, scholarships at Kaua’i Community College and other community


The bubbly and brew is for adults. The proceeds are for

students. Po’ipu Rotary seems to have found a winning combination.
