Aurora Blanket Project fundraiser tomorrow in Kilauea

Three hundred blankets made by children of Kaua‘i, Maui, O‘ahu, New York, California, Washington and New Mexico were made for orphaned and abandoned Burmese refugee children. The project is in memory of Aurora Fehring, daughter to Bruce and Cyndee Fehring. Aurora was one of the seven who perished in the Ka Loko Dam Breach on March 14, 2006. Aurora Fehring’s compassion for the victims of Thailand’s devastating 2004 tsunami inspired her to sponsor orphans there.

From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. tomorrow join the Aurora Blanket Project for a fundraiser at River Ranch in Kilauea — mauka side between mile markers 22 and 23. There will be a slide show, live music and dancing. Tickets are $50 and available at Small Town Coffee, Kilauea Town Market, Island Soap and Candleworks or Papayas in Hanalei. Food donations taken at the door for local charities.

The event will feature local chefs creating a feast from Kaua‘i grown produce using taro, ulu, coconut, macadamia nuts, avocado, citrus and a variety of greens. There will be a live and silent auction and music.

For more information contact Cyndee at 652-5874 or Lee  at 828-1513.
