Silent Auction follows July 4th Parade in Volcano


The Friends of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (FHVNP) is pleased to announce its July 4th Silent Auction. This annual fundraiser is a much anticipated part of Volcano’s Fourth of July parade and festival, which attracts hundreds of residents and visitors each year.

The auction starts at 9 a.m., with final bids at 11:30 a.m. sharp, and is held at the Cooper Center on Wright Road in Volcano Village.

Auction items for 2011 include four rounds of golf at the Makalei Golf Club in Kailua-Kona, four adult guest spaces on Hawaii Forest & Trail’s exclusive Kohala Waterfalls Adventure, an encounter program for two with Dolphin Quest in Waikoloa, a Sea Quest rafting and snorkel adventure for two in Kealakekua Bay, and an underwater adventure for two aboard Atlantis Submarines on Hawaii, Maui, or Oahu.

Overnight stays include a night at the Volcano Rainforest Retreat’s Sanctuary Cottage, two nights in any of the Volcano Guest House’s units, and two nights in the 100+ year old Log Cabin in Volcano Village, to name a few.

Other items on which to bid are massage and acupuncture sessions, a five class pass for Yoga Centered, and family memberships to Imiloa Astronomy Center, Pacific Tsunami Museum, and Volcano Art Center.

Hotly contested items are sure to include gift certificates for Big Island Candies, Garden Exchange, KTA Superstores, and Kona Brewing Company.

Plus, there are restaurant gift cards for Hilo Bay Cafe, Hilo Hawaiian Hotel’s seafood dinner buffet, and brunch or lunch for four at the Kilauea Lodge Restaurant.

From lava photography by G. Brad Lewis to Punaluu Bake Shop gift baskets, there is something for everyone at this fun and popular silent auction.

Original art, photography, prints, jewelry, crafts, clothing, books, CDs, computer items, plants, flowers, and more make up the diverse array of goods and services up for bid.

FHVNP is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, and all auction sales help support volunteer and educational projects in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. These programs help instill a deep appreciation of Hawaii’s fragile natural and cultural resources and provide quality environmental experiences for both visitors and residents.

A portion of the proceeds also benefits the Volcano Community Association and the Cooper Center.
