76 Hawaii and Mid Pac Petroleum are pleased to announce that they were able to raise $2000 for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Hawaii, in conjunction with the Modern American Circus.

“We are so thankful to our partners at 76 for giving our kids the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see The Modern American Circus in Hawaii with their Big Brother of Big Sister,” says President / CEO Dennis Brown. “This is an experience the kids in our program will never forget!”

“All of us here in Hawaii that participate in any kind of fund raising understand that is has gotten increasingly difficult to raise funds using the ways we all become familiar with. The members of the Modern American Circus thought it would be a Win – Win – Win to design a program that allowed people to enjoy entertainment in their communities, help raise some funds for the worthy programs for our community and as a business try to be profitable in that we can do it all over again! The Modern America Circus has a Vision To bring the “Circus to the People”, to have a “Circus with a Purpose”, it is with the Partnerships that were established with companies like 76 that allowed us to raise tens of thousands of dollars for organizations in Hawaii that elected to participate with us and that in the end could locally put those funds to great use.” Carl Vincenti, Director/Member, Modern American Circus
