Earthtrust Fundraising Events

Earthtrust occassionally holds special events that help raise the public's awareness about Earthtrust's mission, and raise much-needed funds. Although these events do raise funds for Earthtrust, the majority of Earthtrust's funding still comes from the donations of dedicated individuals, foundations, and corporations who are interested in furthering Earthtrust's important wildlife conservation mission. We encourage you to help us by making such a donation today!

Following is a sampling of some of Earthtrust's recent fundraising events:

Kenny Loggins Benefit Concert

On May 5, 1995 Kenny Loggins, who has long been helping Earthtrust popularize its wildlife mission, and his full band performed in a benefit concert for Earthtrust at the Sheraton Waikiki ballroom in Honolulu. The show was absolutely fabulous, with the entire band and crew putting on an excellent performance. Opening for Kenny was the Hawaiian group Hapa, on whose first album Kenny performed.

Second Annual "Celebrity Waiter "Benefit

In October of 1995, Earthtrust held its second annual "Celebrity Waiter" Dinner, the poster for which is depicted below. Special Events coordinator Janis McCain is shown being served by Earthtrust's two mascots--a humpback whale and a dolphin! Many thanks to the numerous sponsers of this event, and particularly to the many celebrities who shared their time and talents to help Earthtrust!

The Bridges Family Celebrity Invitational

Each December, the Chairmain of Earthtrust's International Advisory Board, Lloyd Bridges, and his family (including stars Jeff Bridges and Beau Bridges) host a gala celebrity fundraising event on Maui to benefit both Earthtrust and Whales Alive (a program of Earth Island Institute).

Thank you, Lloyd, Dorothy, Jeff, Beau, and Cindy!

Following is the welcome letter from Lloyd and Dorothy Bridges from December 1995 event:

December 1, 1995

Aloha yet again!

A return to Maui is one of the nicest things that could happen to us, especially when we see so many familiar friendly faces and once more host an event that contributes a helping hand to the worthy causes of Whales Alive and Earthtrust.

Our sons, Beau and Jeff, had planned to be with us this trip, but their movie schedules prevented it. They're as disappointed as we are, but that's "show biz." They send you fond hellos and hopes for a future get-together. However, our daughter Cindy and her family will be joining us.

We welcome your company and appreciate you sharing our enthusiastic interest in the environment and in the future of our remarkable fellow mammals - whales and dolphins.

We hope you're sharing the enjoyment, as well. After all, that's the Hawaiian way, isn't it?
