Willie K, a well-known Hawaiian contemporary artist

I love concerts, but when it is up close and personal it is even more fun. So when my cousin told me about a benefit for the Hawaii’s Lupus Foundation, which Willie K will be giving a concert for, I wanted to go. (Here is a sample of Willie K’s songs). Not to mention, my cousin’s daughter, Haley Kagimoto, a talented and aspiring actress and singer who has participated in many local productions, will be singing a few songs too.  The benefit will be held at the intimate setting of the Diamond Head Theatre, a venue for many of Hawaii’s local theatre productions where parking is easily accessible and a food and wine reception will be held for benefit goers who want to sit and mingle before the concert. A wonderful way to start the holiday season!

Here is the info:

What is Lupus?

Lupus is a widespread and chronic (lifelong) autoimmune disease that, for unknown reasons, causes the immune system to attack the body’s own tissue and organs, including the joints, kidneys, heart, lungs, brain, blood, or skin. There is no cure for lupus.

Approximately 10,000 people in Hawai`i are affected by lupus.  Although lupus can affect males and females of all ages, it most often develops in females between the ages of 15 and 44.  Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, Asians, African Americans, Hispanics, Latinos, and Native Americans have an increased incidence of lupus compared to other populations.

About Lupus Hawai`i

For the past 35 years, Lupus Hawai`i has been serving our islands by providing awareness, education and support services. It is our mission to improve the diagnosis and treatment of lupus, support individuals and families affected by the disease, increase awareness of lupus among health professionals and the public, and find the causes and cure.

Hope to see you there!
