Jake Shimabukuro Strums for a Great Cause

You know how, like, there are good musicians and great concerts but in the maelstrom that is the start of summer, you just can’t seem to make it to all the outdoor “fun stuff” you wish you could? Well, let us make it a little easier for you. This Saturday, June 23rd, ‘ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro is performing a special concert that benefits AccesSurf—a wonderful organization that helps adventure-minded folk with disabilities get the “stoke” of surfing.

Basically, pairing what will inevitably be a killer performance by Shimabukuro with a great "cause" should certainly be enough to green light this event for you. Not quite enough? What if we added that it was taking place at the Hard Rock Café in Waikiki, and that their culinary team is unveilinga  new Hawaiian BBQ Surf Burger? Would that do the trick? Yeah, we thought so.

Here’s the deal: General admission is $60 per person—the average price of most concerts these days. However, this fare comes with unlimited heavy pupus (no slouch to the culinary happenings around the isles, we can attest that this Hard Rock team has some chops; their food is totally tasty) and a ticket for a Kona Brewing Co. pint. Or, you and 3 friends can get together and sponsor a VIP table for $500 with premium seating, bolstered food and an exclusive meet-and-hang with Jake an hour before the show (where, say, you could bring your own ‘ukulele and have him sign it, worth far more than $500. Just an idea). Finally, grab 9 of your friends and the ten of you can get a super special sponsorship table for $3,000 and get advertisement billing for your company, plus all the other perks.

Seating is limited. All in all, regardless of which package you buy, a portion will go to AccesSurf. We’ve witnessed first hand the efforts of this organization—insuring that anyone can have the privilege of surfing the healing waters of Hawai‘i. Get in the Aloha Spirit and head to Waikiki this weekend.
