Donated Artwork by Karen Jury Raises $49,000 for Maui Charities

Our heartiest congratulations to Karen Jury on this landmark achievement. We appreciate her generous contribution of her wonderful art to help Maui recover from a devastating wildfire disaster.

This is the communication Karen received from the event organizers:

“We are so grateful for Karen Jury and the beautiful encaustic artwork she has created for the MSWF from photos she has taken at previous MSWF shows. These art pieces are auctioned off at our finale.

Last year we were able to raise $26,000 from Karen’s art to give Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui, Inc. this year her 2 art pieces brought in $49,000 which we split between the Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui and Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society which gave back to those impacted by the fires.

We cannot thank Karen enough for helping us give back to Maui $75,000 out of the $170,00 we have raised in 2 years.
You are amazing & talented.
MAHALO!

Additional thanks goes to Bounty Music who has donated ukulele’s in 2023 & 2024 which all our artists and Singer-Songwriters sign. The ukulele’s have raised $22,000.

A special thank you to Willie Nelson Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real Steven Tyler for signing the art and ukulele’s and all of our Singer-Songwriters from 2023 & 2024 for giving back to Maui!”
