Music Meets Aloha.
On November 18, 2004, MAVIN Foundation was the very grateful recipient of proceeds raised by the 1st Annual "Music Meets Aloha" festival in Honolulu, Hawai'i. Several of our staff were lucky to travel to the Aloha state for sight seeing, strategic planning, and to accept a gift. A very special mahalo to Jake Shimabukuro, Kazusa Flanagan, the Heim Family, and everyone else who made our trip so memorable!
