Good morning, everyone!  We had a great time out at the Paliku Theater on the Windward Community College campus yesterday, where ManoaDNA joined with many of Hawai’i’s top entertainers to record the theme song for this Sunday’s huge Kokua Japan event at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.  This sold-out fundraising event, featuring well-known musicians Willie Nelson, Michael McDonald, and Mick Fleetwood, will be televised live and streamed via the internet to the mainland, Japan, and other countries.  We are extremely honored to be a part of this wonderful event and hope you all will tune in!

We’ll also be appearing this Thursday at 6pm on Pakele Live’s 3rd fundraising segment which will also feature the awesomely talented Nathan Aweau, and the group Kaiaulu.   All proceeds from this event will go to aid the victims of Japan’s earthquake & tsunami disaster.   Whew!  It’s gonna be another busy week for ManoaDNA … all for a good cause, though!

Today is like the calm before the storm … I only have one meeting this morning.  I think I’ll stop in at Nijiya Market to pick up lunch and then spend the rest of the afternoon catching up on my paperwork.  Starting tomorrow, we’ll be on the go until Sunday evening …

Aloha, “D”
