‘Enchanted Fantasy’ show to benefit Hawaii Island HIV/AIDS foundation Aug. 1



Dreams will come true with a charmed night of ‘Enchanted Fantasy’

The public is invited to escape the humdrum of routine life and enjoy an arousing night of delight and celebration Saturday, Aug. 1 at “Enchanted Fantasy”.

The show aims to raise awareness of the Travys House, which was established to be a beacon for gay youth who feel lost and confused, providing a safe haven that offers guidance, love, respect, and loyalty, said Tehane Travys, the matriarch of the dynasty.

“Some kids don’t have a place to turn to about being gay. Some have attempted suicide. We teach them that it’s OK to be who you are, to be proud and not ashamed. We’re all human,” Travys said.

A special performance by Tehane will be in memory of Erik DeMers Travys, who lived in Kona for five years.

“He left us too soon at 30 years old,” Tehane said. “I chose the song ‘Footprints in the Sand’ because it conveys the message of love and caring when one’s spirits are down. I want to give them courage, to tell them that nothing is too big or too small to handle.”

Donations from the performance will benefit the Hawaii Island HIV/AIDS Foundation.

Doors open at 5 p.m. at the Kamakahonu ballroom in King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel. Hawaiian music and a hula show begins at 6 p.m. followed by Hawaii’s finest female illusionists, including 2009 Miss Hawaii Island Pride Cyenna Italanie Travys.

Admission is 18+w/adult. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, and $30 for a reserved table. They may be purchased in Kona at Double Dare, Kamuela Deli, and the Hawaii Island HIV/AIDS Foundation, or in Hilo at Cherry Jubilee and Sun & Sea Hawaii.
