Regency steps up to fight Alzheimer’s

LIHUE — The timing of the Bargain Bin and silent auction at the Regency at Puakea was nearly perfect for Jennifer Palpallatoc Wednesday.

“I’m getting ready to ship a box to the Philippines,” Palpallatoc said. “These can go in to help fill it so I can ship it.”

Palpallatoc was browsing the footwear available, getting an offer from Bea Moniz to “extract” her selections.

“My job is to sell these,” Moniz said. “If they want, I can extract their items, especially the furniture. One guy was looking at a massage chair, and I told him I would extract it — he would have to wait until it dried.”

The Regency at Puakea also had items for bid, including wines, artwork, jewelry, furniture, and more to reach its goal of raising at least $2,000 to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association and the 2017 Walk to End Alzheimer’s – Kauai, which will take place on Aug. 12 in Kapaa.

“We’re lucky we have the Koloa seniors visiting today,” said Sharon Lasker, Regency marketing director.

A special bento lunch of a pair of manapua, Spam musubi and fried chicken wings and a bottle of water flowed out of the Regency kitchen — all to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.
