Hundreds support Dennis Kamakahi cancer fundraiser

Dennis Kamakahi fundraiser at Willows

Hundreds gathered Monday night in support of well-known local musician Dennis Kamakahi.

He was recently diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.

The news of his illness spread quickly within the Hawaiian music community, and many of his fellow musicians stepped up to offer their support.

“I just hope that the outpouring of support today just really. I hope he sees this and is encouraged by it and that he can use all of our collective energy as fuel for his fight,” entertainer Danny Carvalho said.

The fundraiser ended about an hour ago, but donations are still welcome.
