 Schuler Homes sponsors Sunset on the Beach, "Courage to Live"

             After a two-week hiatus, Sunset on the Beach returns to Waikiki, offering courage, inspiration and stellar entertainment.  Sponsored by Schuler Homes Hawaii, Sunset on the Beach at Queen's Surf Beach is the place to be this weekend, Saturday, April 12 and Sunday, April 13, when entertainment giants share the stage with special guests, Charlie and Lucy Wedermeyer.   The food-music-movie fest will also premier a short film inspired by the love story of the Wedermeyers, "Courage to Live."

             Mr. Michael Jones, President of Schuler Homes Hawaii says of the event:  "We are proud to sponsor a great family event that brings residents back to Waikiki for a family day at the beach.  Charlie and Lucy Wedermeyer are models of love, courage, and commitment and we are looking forward to premiering their new film, "Courage to Live."

             Mayor Jeremy Harris commented, "Schuler Homes Hawaii has always been one of our community's leaders in supporting community programs.  During these unsettled times, they recognize the economic value of Sunset on the Beach in supporting small business and stimulating our tourism industry."  

             The fun begins at 4 p.m. with live entertainment and food booths.  Saturday, join Hawaiian 105 KINE emcee Kimo Kahoano as he brings the best in Hawaiian entertainment.  The lineup includes Puamana, Melveen Leed, The Brothers Cazimero, and David "Kawika" Kahiapa.  At 7:10 p.m., Sunset on the Beach premiers the short film, "Courage to Live," based on the inspirational life of Charlie and Lucy Wedemeyer.  Both Charlie and Lucy join Mayor Jeremy Harris and "Courage to Live" producer and director Suzanne Maurer and Don Mapes after the movie.

             At 8:10 p.m., the giant 30-foot screen features "Spy Kids 2:  The Island of Lost Dreams", with Antonio Banderos and Carla Gugino.  Super spy siblings are back with espionage and counter espionage action and super special effects, making this movie a scaled-up version of its prequel.

              On Sunday, "Backyard Paina" kicks off live entertainment at 4 p.m. with host KCCN FM-100.   Then at 7:30 p.m., it's comedy and adventure with Jackie Chan, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jason Isaacs, in "The Tuxedo."  Jackie Chan is a taxicab driver who transforms into a high-tech fighting machine when he dons a mysterious tuxedo belonging to his former boss, a CIA agent.  Lots of laughs for the entire family.

             Whether you choose to picnic on the beach or dine at tables with bright blue umbrellas on the Kapahulu pier, choose from a wide menu selection from chefs' signature presentations to pizzas, hot dogs and snacks at very special prices.  This week, restaurants participating include Royal Hawaiian Hot Dog, Leo's Greek Taverna, Compadres Bar & Grill, Arnold's Beach Bar & Grill, Seafood Village, Olivera's, Time 2 Grind, Bale French Sandwich & Restaurant, Popcorn Express, Pizza Hut and Del's Lemonade.
