The lineup will include ukulele masters, Rick Jitchaku and Brian Vasquez, soulful guitarist Ronnie Harris, the melodies of Dennis and Christy Soares, Harp talents of Cymber Lily Quinn and more.

All artists are donating their time and talent to ensure every dollar raised will support quality and compassionate end-of-life care for patients in East Hawaii.

To the Soares’, this is a labor of love, “We have performed for Hospice of Hilo’s memorial service many times, and the stories from families touched by hospice care are amazing,” said Dennis Soares, “All of us will meet a point of our life when hospice is appropriate. Christy and I can’t think of a better cause to support.”

“We are so grateful to the Soares’ and the many musicians for sharing their incredible gifts to benefit Hospice of Hilo,” said An Umamoto, Hospice of Hilo Development Coordinator. “Last year’s event was wonderful and we look forward to another amazing experience this August.”

Tickets are $10 each. To purchase, visit or call Hospice of Hilo at (808) 969-1733.
