This live music event featuring a daylong lineup of performances by a variety of Maui musicians will be hosted on Sunday, April 24 from 9AM to 5PM at the family farm of Pacific Biodiesel founders, Bob and Kelly King, in Maui's Central Valley where a 35-acre field of sunflowers – the national flower of Ukraine – will be in bloom.
This benefit concert and farm tour event is now SOLD OUT. Donations are still being accepted through this event website.

During this event, attendees will be able to view the sunflowers and visit the on-site Farm Stand to purchase products manufactured from the sustainable farming operation by the Kings’ company, Maiden Hawaii Naturals, LLC, including culinary oils and cosmetic (including CBD) products. Food trucks will be on site offering food and beverages for purchase, including menu items prepared with Maiden Hawaii Naturals culinary oils.
100% of ticket sales, as well as a portion of the proceeds from farm stand and food truck sales during the event, will benefit UNICEF USA for Ukraine Emergency Relief.
***UPDATE: Philanthropists Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez will donate up to $50,000 to match funds raised as part of this event! That includes all tickets purchased and individual donations made on this event website!
The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is focusing its humanitarian work in Ukraine on meeting the most critical urgent needs as the situation for children and families there continues to deteriorate. According to a recent statement by UNICEF USA, two million children have now been forced to flee Ukraine, as the war rages on. “The situation inside Ukraine is spiraling,” said UNICEF Executive Director Catherine Russell. “As the number of children fleeing their homes continues to climb, we must remember that every single one of them needs protection, education, safety and support.”
Parking: Parking will be a $5 minimum donation per car at the gate. Due to limited parking at the farm, carpooling is encouraged. A complimentary cut sunflower bloom will be given with each parking donation. Vehicles must enter the farm through the main gate located on Honoapiilani Highway just north of the Kuihelani Highway intersection (look for the yellow gate near the silver farm silos). As a reminder, the State has posted no parking signs on both highways along the perimeter of the farm. Gate opens at 8:15AM.
At The Event: Seating under the event tent will be provided. To minimize waste, please bring your water bottle to refill at water stations on site. No alcohol or coolers. Visitors to the farm are encouraged to wear comfortable, closed-toed shoes. Please use caution while walking on site; this is a private, working farm with uneven ground and rocks. Wearing hats and reef-safe sunscreen is also recommended at the farm site, which can be hot and windy.
