Island musicians including Kalapana, Brother Noland, Princess Ilona and Isle 5 are scheduled to perform Saturday at a benefit for the REACH Out Hawaii program, an initiative spearheaded by Lt. Gov. Shan Tsutsui to establish a frameworkfor state-sponsored after-school activities for middle school students.

The event is scheduled from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Pagoda Floating Restaurant on Rycroft Street in Honolulu. Tickets are $100.

Other food for the event is being provided by Hukilau Lounge, Murphy’s Bar and Grill, JJ Dolans, Poke Stop, MW Restaurant, Nalo Farms and more.
