          Central Pacific Bank, corporate sponsors of community events in Hawaii for 50 years, will sponsor Sunset on the Beach this Labor Day weekend, Saturday, August 31 and Sunday, September 1, at Queen’s Surf Beach in Waikiki.


          “We are pleased to support this great community event, which brings local residents, families and fellowship back to Waikiki,” said Clint Arnoldus, Central Pacific Bank Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.


          The festivities begin at 4 p.m. with recorded Hawaiian music and food booths.  At 5 p.m., KRATER 96 radio starts things off on Saturday with popular island group Simplisity.  On Sunday KCCN FM100 kicks off the evening’s activities with the sound of Ko’o Mana’o.  Come join in the fun, as Central Pacific Bank and the radio stations engage the audience in fun, interesting contests and prizes.


Relax and sample a king’s ransom of gourmet treats, from delectable appetizers to chef’s signature entrees and tempting desserts.  Restaurants such as Royal Hawaiian Hot Dog, Nutty Hawaiian, Suekko, Seafood Village, Catania Restorante Italiano, Moani’s Country Kitchen, Kit n’ Kitchen, Popcorn Express, Davey Jones Ribs, Pizza Hut and Beach House Beverage Cart offer a wide variety of food to satisfy every member of your group. 


Complete the perfect evening under a canopy of stars, watching your favorite movie on a giant 30-foot screen with beautiful Diamond Head in the background.  On Saturday, Dennis Quaid is Texas baseball coach Jim Morris, who finds himself successfully auditioning for the major league as part of the “deal” he makes with his team.  At a relatively advanced age, Morris is recruited as a major league player and realizes that it is never too late to realize one’s dreams.  An inspiring true story, “The Rookie” is a warm family feature that showcases Quaid’s talent.


On Sunday, the big screen comes alive with J.R.R. Tolkien’s classic fantasy trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings.”  The fourth highest grossing movie in cinematic history, the Fellowship of the Rings will thrill the entire family with its dramatic visuals and vivid animation.  All movies begin at 7:30 p.m.


            This week, Sunset on the Beach is sponsored by Central Pacific Bank and the Waikiki Improvement Association, in cooperation with the City & County of Honolulu, Hawaii Restaurant Association, News 8, K5 The Home Team, KRATER 96 and KCCN FM 100 radio stations.


            Next week, Central Pacific Bank will once again sponsor “Sunset on the Beach.”  In addition, this generous corporate sponsor will be going one step further, producing a live video recording of the locally written song, “Give Aloha.”


            On September 8, prior to the featured movie at “Sunset on the Beach,” local artists and city and state emergency response personnel will join together and participate in this special effort.  A video of this live recording will then be presented as a gift to the people of New York City.  “What will make this recording special is that we are asking the people of Hawaii to be a part of a recording that will be given as a gift to the people of New York City,” said Arnoldus.  Thousands of residents and visitors are expected to participate and share their aloha of our state and great nation at this “Sunset of the Beach” event.


            For more information, contact 523-CITY or the Waikiki Improvement Association at 923-1094.
