Excessive Celebrations & Hawaii Meals on Wheels

Friday, July 10, 2009
The Shack, Waikiki

Excessive Celebrations and Hawaii Meals on Wheels held a fundraising event at The Shack in Waikiki featuring University of Hawaii's own Colt Brennan, Davone Bess, and Ryan Mouton!

They held a silent auction, and 100% of the proceeds went to Meals on Wheels. There were a ton of memorabilia to be won...jerseys,

autographed footballs...

helmets...

And lots of signed pictures

The guys also graciously were signing autographs for the hundreds of fans that showed up for the event.

Fans brought along their own souvenirs to be signed...

Someone even brought a pair of shoes!

This is John showing us a couple of the footballs signed by Colt Brennan

Even the news showed up for this event! This is Colt being interviewed by Mike Cherry of KGMB
This is my friend Kyle from Excessive Celebrations

There was lots of good food and drinks, and after all (well, most) of the autographs were signed, the boys actually were able to get something to eat...

This is Kyle and his lovely wife Lauren...

Here are some of the wonderful volunteers from Meals on Wheels...

This is the football that Brett won for $50 I think...

And this is the guy that outbid him on a bottle of tequila!


Overall the night was a huge success, great for the fans of Hawaii and especially great for Meals on Wheels. Thanks Kyle! This was fun!

Didi -- he used to be the general manager at Willows with Garrett Kamei. I went to school with both of them. Kyle recently left Willows to pursue his own business "Excessive Celebrations." Garrett is now running the place by himself.

BTW...my husband says he has no idea what the heck was in his Locro...sorry! :(
