Tunnel tours and pasta combine in benefit event
The Hawaii Animal Sanctuary is hosting an Italian dinner and a tour of the World War II tunnels above Kaneohe Bay on Saturday as a fund-raiser for its no-kill shelter for abused and abandoned animals.
The event, from 6:30 to 11 p.m., will be held on the grounds outside the entrance to the tunnels, located just above the Aikahi fire station. Guided tours of the historic site will be provided, as well as a buffet under the stars.
As a bonus, the site offers a perfect view of Kaneohe Bay, where fireworks will be held as part of Bay Fest that night.
Cost is $30 and reservations are required. Call 206-4968 or 395-0023.
