Hilton Alves Partners with Project Pure Light at Saturday Fundraising Event

July 23, 2009 – Honolulu, HI – This Saturday Marine Artist and Waterman Hilton Alves, also the founder of the Surf Art Kids Project, will partner with Project Pure Light at its fundraising event at Don Ho’s Island Grill. The event will be held from 11:00 am till 3:00 pm and will benefit Project Pure Light. Hilton Alves will be putting the finishing touches an original paddling themed painting live, which will be auctioned off at the event. Linking art with social responsibility, Alves will be donating half of all art proceeds of the day to Project Pure light including proceeds from the original art piece auction. Tickets to the event will be available at the door for $25 dollars and all are welcomed to the event.

Pure Light Project Pure Light is a non-profit organization that was created in 2002 to allow physically, mentally and emotionally challenged individuals the opportunity to participate in ocean recreation and sports programs, primarily through Hawaiian outrigger canoes. These programs are aimed at the preservation, development and enhancement of the diversity of thought, culture and heritage within Hawai’i. Project Pure Light is a program with an emphasis on safety and fun for adaptive paddlers of all ages. Currently programs are available on O'ahu and in Kailua-Kona on the Island of Hawai'i.

"My goal is to take art everywhere and make a difference in the lives of people involved directly and indirectly. I am delighted to return the aloha I’ve received from the Hawaiian community," says Alves.

Surf Art Kids Tour 2009 - La'ie Elementary School DAY 1

On March 29th Hilton began the second leg of his Surf Art Kids Tour of 2009 at La’ie Elementary School. The first of two murals Hilton is painting at La’ie is 14 x 50 feet. This mural features a heart shaped reef cave and sandy ocean bottom and Hilton will be adding fish, coral and other marine life in the next several days.

Hilton says he designed the reef in this fashion, “to show children [his] respect for the sea and its inhabitants.” During the intervals between the classes, Hilton was able to share this message with the many students who came to watch the artist in action. He states, “I was happy to help inspire the youth and I’m excited that they will be helping me to paint the second mural early next week.”

Hilton was also honored to help judge a poster contest, which attracted 300 entrants from the school. With the theme, “Our La’ie Bay” students create posters demonstrating their awareness of the need to protect marine life and ocean resources. Out of 300 entries 12 will be awarded for their posters at a special assembly on June 3rd. Made by children from ages 4 to 11, the posters impressed Hilton for the attention to details, creativity, important messages and compassion for the future they possessed. Winners will receive artwork by Hilton and prizes donated by Go Nuts Hawai’i.

The mural wall became a gathering place for interested students during lunchtime. Hilton spent 45 minutes to demonstrate his drawing techniques for eager students, sign autographs and talk with the children about saving the ocean and marine life. Hilton exclaims, “I was inspired seeing the joy these children are having with the new look of the school and having me share my talents and message with them.”
