Beer, Bites & Bocce

A fundraiser for Waikoloa Dry Forest

When & where

Join us on Sunday, September 10th from 2pm-6pm at the beautiful Anna Ranch in Waimea for a Bocce Ball Tournament & Fundraiser for Waikoloa Dry Forest Initiative. Sign up at the FULL TEAM ticket level to enter the tournament and you'll each receive a custom, insulated beer growler with your ticket. Everytime you fill your growler at Big Island Brewhaus, they'll donate a portion of the sale to WDFI! You can also sign up as a single player, or just come out for the food, beer and spectating. Each ticket holder will receive three beverage tickets and gourmet food sampling throughout the day. 

Not just Bocce

We've lined up some great food tasting including gourmet locally sourced creations from Waimea Butcher Shop, famous bacon sliders from Mai Grille, gourmet pizza from The Pirate Kitchen, vegan bites and more from Chef EZ and decadent desserts from Pineapple Bakery. We'll also be serving beer, wine, and fresh fruit bellinis. Our art auction will feature fine art from local artists including photography, stained glass, jewelry, paintings, drawings and hand painted silk clothing. You'll also have access to our silent auction which is full of gift certificates to local restaurants and shops, adventures, art, jewelry, antiques, and collectibles. 

Art for a Cause

Never played bocce before?

No problem. Bocce is a fun game, similar to lawn bowling, that is easy to learn. In this tournament, we'll be playing on grass courts with four-member teams facing off in a double elimination challenge. You'll need a partner, a great team name, a snappy outfit, and a good attitude!Bocce Rules

Mahalo to our business sponsors! We couldn't deliver such fun events without the help and support of our local business community support!
