Tommy Contrades was happy with the malasada magic which saw about 80 pounds of dough completed in less than four hours for the Catholic Charities of Hawai‘i. This is more than the 50 pounds they did during the last Hanama‘ulu swap meet.
Tommy was joined by Ray Domingo (no Starlighters) who said he would have to be at the Taste of Hawai‘i early, Sunday to help at the Rotary Club of Kapa‘a fundraiser as one of his culinary arts exams.
Neil Rapozo was spinning his collection of country western tunes and sisters Gwen Fujimoto, Bea Hiranaka, Clara Nuivo and Priscilla Rego were having fun while doing the malasadas with Tommy’s crew. Great job, Eddie Sarita and the Hanama‘ulu Neighborhood Association!
Kudos, too, to Liza Trinidad and the Kaua‘i Filipino Community Council on a great fashion show event at the Kukui Grove Center.
Topaz Fernandez didn’t miss a beat even if she had a graduation party scheduled later in the afternoon and Grandma Sole and Grandpa Baco Fernandez made sure they were there even if there were no Starlighters.
OK, time to check out Carol Everett and all them Critter Campers.
