TCM's ConTempo Date Set for April 18
"Hawaii Superferry Makes Fundraising Debut"
by Charlie Aldinger
It's bon voyage time. The Contemporary Museum's major fundraiser,
ConTempo 2009: A Superferry Soiree, will have a new nautical home
this year, according to event co-chairpersons Cherye Pierce and
Tiana Torii. TCM's gala aboard the Hawaii Superferry will include a
Waikiki cocktail-and-pupus cruise with a gourmet dinner catered by
Chai's Island Bistro in the Hawaii Superferry Terminal following the
cruise. Other activities will include a silent auction and contemporary
art sale with dancing and live entertainment...
Premium tables of ten are available at $25,000 (Luminaries), $15,000
(Visionaries), $10,000 (Benefactors), $7,000 (Patrons) and $5,000
(Sponsors). Individual tickets are also available at $500 per person.
Premium table sales have already begun and reservations are available
by calling Gordon Wong... Pierce and Torii are anticipating brisk
reservations because of the location of this year's event.
...ConTempo revelers will board the Hawaii Superferry from 5:45 to
6:30 p.m., then cruise along the shores of Waikiki towards Diamond Head
and beyond, returning around 8:15 p.m. (For port security reasons, all
guests will be required to show a picture ID before boarding.)
Dinner and dancing will resume until 11:30 p.m. in the Hawaii Superferry
Terminal after disembarking.
Toss your black ties
Suggested dress is nautical chic and dressy cocktail attire, with boat-
appropriate shoes recommended as stair-climbing will be a part of the
boarding process. Jackets for the men are requested...
Just don't go too far beyond Hawai'i Kai,
