SAVOR 2019 raised over $160,000! Proceeds from the annual SAVOR event benefit our Let’s Build A School Initiative, our Educational Enrichment (After School) Programs, and our Scholarship support for North Shore students attending Kauai Community College.
We are on the way and advancing towards our goal to bring a tuition-free secondary school to our North Shore. This is in large part to our dedicated volunteers, our community supporters, and our generous donors. We are grateful to everyone who joined us for this delectable evening of epicurean excellence!

The 2nd Annual education fundraiser, SAVOR – A Wine and Chocolate Fundraising Event, was held last August at the beautiful setting of Po’oku Meadow in Princeville where over 200 people attended. Local Kauai chefs and chocolatiers served up mouth-watering delicacies with cacao as one of the ingredients, which included pupus, small main dishes, and desserts. Selections of delicious wines accompanied the dishes. All food and wine were included in the ticket price while a no-host bar offered beer or spirits for those who didn’t drink wine.
Four recipients of the 2016 KCC scholarship were on hand to check everyone in, and Key Club students from Kapa’a High School helped throughout the evening. TreySara provided beautiful entertainment, and both live auction and silent auction items contributed to the overall funds raised. We were thrilled to gross over $31,000 from ticket sales, donations and auction items – no small feat for our community. Even though our expenses were more this year due to the venue costs, the net proceeds will benefit scholarships for Kauai North Shore youth. The Kauai North Shore Community Foundation will once again support elementary, middle and high school youth, including our own homegrown programs – Leap Forward and Help Me With My Homework.
Many thanks to all our donors and guests for making this event such a great success!!
