Romantic Hawaiian Getaway

Say aloha to Hawaii with a trip for two to the beautiful island of Maui. If you have the winning bid, you and a loved one will fly to Hawaii (airfare included), where you’ll stay at the Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa. The beautiful hotel is situated on Kaanapali Beach, the most romantic escape in all the Hawaiian Islands. Anchored by the legendary Black Rock of Kaanapali as it meets the sea, this spectacular Maui hotel beckons romantics.

Exclusive Pamplemousse Experience

According to the DiscoverSD.com, “Pamplemousse Grille is a paradise for the refined palate.” Owner and Executive Chef Jeffrey Strauss is undeniably unique in his approach to cuisine, so much so it has been said, “Jeffrey Strauss blends spices and flavors to create a cuisine category all his own…” Now you can purchase the exclusive experience of dinner for 8 with wine in a private room at Pamplemousse Grille.

Understanding AYA

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term AYA, it stands for “Adolescent and Young Adult”.  Because this age range falls neatly under neither “Children” nor “Adult”, this group is often overlooked.  The Seany Room at RCHSD was designed especially with AYA in mind.

Now, here is an interesting fact from our friends at i2y: Some 72,000 Americans aged 15 to 39 are diagnosed with cancer every year, and more than 10,000 die. They make up less than 10% of all cancer patients, but survival rates for teens and young adults have barely budged since 1975, while those for children and older people have made dramatic gains.
