Celebrating the 70's: The 2024 Bridge: Kaua'i to College Gala

The Koloa Landing Resort

Join us for a groovy night at Koloa Landing Resort at Poipu as we celebrate the 70's in style! Dust off your bell-bottoms and platform shoes for a night of good food, good sounds, and good vibes. We will be FUNdraising to support our mission of providing our local Scholars the tools, guidance, and support to successfully prepare for and gain acceptance to college. This enjoyable evening includes a VIP reception, dinner, live auction, world class music, the chance to boogie down, and a unique opportunity to meet our Bridge Scholars. You can also look forward to:

PATTY PETERSON, a dynamic Jazz/R&B vocalist and received the coveted Minnesota Music Award seven times for best vocalist as well as best jazz recording. In 2010, Patty was inducted into the Mid America Hall of Fame. Her distinctive style and passionate singing endear her to fans all over the country.

MICHAEL RUFF, our local boy, a Grammy® nominated producer and songwriter, BMI Award winner, Multiple Na Hoku Award winner and Nominee. His ensemble of dedicated and talented musicians will provide the perfect notes to compliment Patty's dynamic vocals.

KOLOA LANDING RESORT, a luxurious paradise setting on Kaua'i's famed South Shore. Their Culinary Team is customizing an iconic 70's menu reminiscent of beloved foodie pioneers James Beard, Julia Child, and Graham Kerr.
