Local talent join forces to support Hospice of Hilo


Hawaii Media Arts, founded by Dennis and Christy Soares, will be hosting the Second Annual Hospice of Hilo Benefit Concert on Saturday, August 10 at 7 p.m.. The performance will be held at Hospice of Hilo’s Community Building at 1011 Waianuenue Avenue and will showcase a lineup of talented musicians.

The lineup will include ukulele masters, Rick Jitchaku and Brian Vasquez, soulful guitarist Ronnie Harris, the melodies of Dennis and Christy Soares, Harp talents of Cymber Lily Quinn and more.

All artists are donating their time and talent to  support quality and compassionate end-of-life care for patients in East Hawaii.

To the Soares’, this is a labor of love, “We have performed for Hospice of Hilo’s memorial service many times, and the stories from families touched by hospice care are amazing,” Dennis Soares said, “All of us will meet a point of our life when hospice is appropriate.  Christy and I can’t think of a better cause to support.”

“We are so grateful to the Soares’ and the many musicians for sharing their incredible gifts to benefit Hospice of Hilo,” An Umamoto, Hospice of Hilo Development Coordinator, said.  “Last year’s event was wonderful and we look forward to another amazing experience this August.”

Tickets are $10 each.
