Moonlight & Music, Saturday August 17th
Dance under the Moon in McBryde Garden

This spectacular night features dinner and dancing under the stars at one of the most beautiful botanical gardens in the world, McBryde Garden. All proceeds from our annual Moonlight & Music Fundraiser benefit the critical plant conservation, research and educational efforts of NTBG, a not-for-profit institution dedicated to discovering, saving, and studying the world's tropical plants and sharing what is learned.

This year's presenting sponsor is Hawai`i’s award-winning Kōloa Rum Company who will be bringing in master mixologist Matthew Biancaniello, author of “ Eat Your Drink Culinary Cocktails,” to create special libations featuring Kōloa Rum and ingredients from NTBG, with a special emphasis on ‘ulu (breadfruit), one of the ‘canoe plants’ that the first Polynesian settlers brought to the Hawaiian Islands. Together with Biancaniello, Kōloa Rum will offer special one-on-one experiences for high-level Kauwila Table sponsors to “talk story” and learn about his innovative approach to mixology.

Evening Feature:
- Live Music by Rumba de Fuego
- Delicious Local Dinner
