GENTRY HOMES PROUDLY SPONSORS SUNSET ON THE BEACH

There will be excitement and prizes galore this weekend when Gentry Homes sponsors Sunset on the Beach Saturday, November 16 and Sunday, November 17 at Queen’s Surf Beach in Waikiki.  

             According to Bob Brandt, President and CEO of Gentry Homes, the audience will have several opportunities to win prizes.  “We think the City has done a fine job in promoting these events.  It’s great fun for the entire family and Gentry Homes is happy to contribute and sponsor Sunset on the Beach for the people of Hawaii,” he said. 

On Saturday, from 4 to 6 p.m., KSSK’s Sweetie Paccaro will be Sunset handing out prizes to lucky audience participants.   On both Saturday and Sunday at 6 p.m., Gentry Homes will be giving away beach towels, beach chairs, a boogie board or two, and the grand prize on both nights will be a two-night stay at the new Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel!

 "We’re grateful for Gentry’s sponsorship and efforts to produce a fun-filled event for everyone this weekend,” said Mayor Jeremy Harris.  Gentry has been part of Hawaii since 1968, when Tom Gentry first developed the Enchanted Lake community in Kailua, and we’re pleased tht they have once again stepped up to help one of the most exciting programs in Hawaii.”

At 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, KSSK hosts musical groups “Epic Session” and “Soul Free” on the big stage.   On Sunday, by popular demand, Oldies 107.9 deejays welcome back the hot group, “Simplisity.” 

 At 6:30, Sunset’s blockbuster movies take center court, with first-rate films shown on the 30-foot screen.  Saturday’s featured film is the hilarious “Big Fat Liar” with Frankie Muniz in the lead role and Lee Majors co-starring.  This teen comedy portrays a high school student whose class paper is surreptitiously made into a Hollywood blockbuster by a corrupt producer.  The unscrupulous movie mogul then becomes the target of a series of humiliating pranks, which ultimately reforms him.

On Sunday, it’s “Runaway Bride,” with Julia Roberts teaming up once again with Richard Gere.  Also starring are Joan Cusack and Hector Elizondo in a romantic comedy about a woman reputed to have left several prospective husbands at the altar.  A reporter tracks her down to do a story but instead ends up falling in love with her.  It’s a pleasant if not believable storyline, made even more enjoyable by excellent casting. 

             Whether you choose to picnic on the beach or dine on tables set up on the Kapahulu Pier, choose from a wide menu selection – from pizzas and hot dogs to chef’s signature plates at very reasonable prices.  Restaurants this weekend include East West BBQ, Ft. Ruger Market, Bale French Sandwich & Restaurant, Mr. Pizza, Royal Hawaiian Hot Dog, Slush Puppie, and Beach House Beverage Cart.
