“It’s an opportunity for the community to help others build homes while spring-cleaning their own,” said Event Organizer, Kim Arakawa.  Those wishing to donate will be able to drive right up to the donation area—saving a trip to Hilo.

“We will also be collecting canned good donations for the Food Basket, giving each person who donates an opportunity to be entered in a chance to win prize drawing”, said Arakawa.

Other featured community booths will be:  Mokupāpapa Discovery Center, HPD’s Keiki ID Program, Bee Love Hawai‘i, Recycle Hawai‘i, The Hawai‘i Island Sustainability Organization, University of Hawai‘i at Hilo’s Aquaponics and The US Forestry Service with Smokey the Bear.

“We have a lot of really fun activities for families, with the Zoo Choo, Face Painting, Henna Art, Candle Dipping, Medieval Games, a massage booth, all day entertainment, great food, tons of free craft activities for the keiki, Waldorf puppet shows, frequent prize drawings, a fantastic silent auction and easy parking,” said Arakawa.

“The event is also a open house, giving the community at large an opportunity to see our beautiful learning environment, learn about our educational philosophy and experience our nurturing Waldorf approach,” said Administrative Chair Kehaulani Costa.   “The event really helps raise the funds for our much needed tuition assistance program, which provides scholarships and major tuition support to over 70% of our families,” Costa continued.  And this year, in addition to the $2500 new enrolling student discount, new families who pick up the Spring Faire coupon will also receive a $500 discount off of 2012-2013 tuition–for a total of $3000 off of next year’s tuition.  For more information please call, 982-7701.
