My Travel Story

by: James Maalis Start Date: Jul 12, 2016 - End Date: Nov 8, 2016
This trip will definitely be a once-in-a-lifetime trip! Getting to go to Hawaii will be very educational and meaningful. In preparation, I have read about the bombing of Pearl Harbor and what events lead up to it.

We are going to perform in the 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor Parade on the actual anniversary date, December 7th.

Here is a peek at what I get to do:

Stay at Hotel Waikiki
See Diamond Head, Pali Lookout, Dole Plantation, North Shore beaches, the World Famous Banzi Pipeline, Waimea Bay, Sunset beach, visit the Polynesian Villages and perform there, take part of the Wreath Laying at the USS Arizona Memorial, and perform at the Memorial or the USS Missouri, visit the International Marketplace, and have tons of fun in the ocean!

I have had a few people ask if they can donate directly to my trip without buying from the pasta, cookie or candybar fundraisers. Creating a fund myh travel account will be a great way to do that. I promise every cent will towards helping pay for my trip and expenses. I am very thankful for this opportunity and any supoort I get.

The trip costs $2200.00 and I am trying to raise $500 to help pay for it and some of the expenses I'll have while I am there.

Thanks again,
