"Cheers for Moloka'i and Lana'i High" kicked off Wednesday afternoon at Murphy's Bar & Grill in Downtown Honolulu.
The second annual fundraising benefit helps both high schools offset underfunding concerns.
In 2014 alone, Moloka'i is facing a $32,000 travel deficit according to school officials. The two high school athletic programs are forced to travel elsewhere for athletic competition most of the time because of their locations.
Ticket cost for the event was $75 per person.
Guest enjoyed a variety of pupus, including local treats like Moloka'i poi.
