Usually before Maui’s fancy fundraisers, the big question is, which pair of slippers am I going to wear? (we are a pretty casual group) For next weekend’s 14th Annual Carden Academy Jamboree, the question is, which pair of cowboy boots? The theme for this popular soiree is ‘Paniolo’, and jeans, cowboy hats and of course boots are all welcomed! The event takes place at the Oskie Rice Polo Field in Makawao, and features a BBQ dinner by Three’s Bar and Grill and dancing until 11pm with the Country Knights.
Returning this year will be the amazing auction for which the Jamboree is famous, and the homemade pie contest. In a new spin on an old tradition, the Carden students have again made quilts, but this year they only made two, and they will be part of a special giveaway contest! The Jamboree supports the programs and tuition assistance at Carden Academy of Maui. This year’s event will be Friday, April 25, from 5:30 – 11pm. (Please note the new date for the event, which had to be rescheduled due to a conflicting event)
This year’s menu from Three’s features Kiawe Smoked Root Beer Glazed Brisket, 3’s BBQ Ribs with Guava-Chipotle Sauce, Mesquite Char-Grilled BBQ Chicken, 3-Bean Garden Fresh Chili, Mac n’ Cheese with Herb Breadcrumbs, Char-Grilled Chimichurri Vegetables, Honey Chipotle Glazed Corn Bread, and Caesar Salad.
A cash bar will also be available, with cocktails by Dazoo Restaurant’s mixologist, Jimmy Shoemaker. Jimmy will be serving up his famous mixed drinks, along with Dazoo’s Bald Sodas, the non-alcoholic sodas made with fresh fruit, macerated and mixed sparkling water and a touch of vinegar.
