FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HONOLULU — (November 19, 2013) Christmas came early for Hawai‘i Children’s Cancer Foundation as it has been named the beneficiary for a holiday song produced by Honolulu-based “aloha rock” band, The Dukes of Surf.
The catchy lyrics and enticing, seasonal melody of “Aloha Christmas” will be sure to warm the hearts of those who dream of escaping to the balmy, sun-kissed shores of Hawai‘i as well as kama‘ina celebrating their own holiday in paradise.
The Dukes of Surf’s first single, “Waikiki,” launched last year and hovered near top of Japanese Billboard charts for seven weeks; the group also appeared on the 2014 Grammy pop art ballot.
Members of The Dukes of Surf include JP Lam, Michael Lee and Mike Fish –three beach-loving guys from surf towns in Hawai‘i, Florida and California that connected to share their love of music and surf and to create a completely new form of “aloha rock” – a catchy genre reminiscent of the Beach Boys, but with a modern, Hawai‘i-infused twist.
“It’s great to be part of giving some sunshine back to children battling cancer during this holiday season and we hope that all will join us in supporting the ‘Aloha Christmas’ campaign,” said lead singer and co-song writer JP Lam.
All proceeds from US iTunes 2013 sales of “Aloha Christmas,” will be donated to Hawai‘i Children’s Cancer Foundation.
The “Aloha Christmas” song can be download on iTunes for $1.29.

About Hawai‘i Children’s Cancer Foundation
Hawai‘i Children’s Cancer Foundation (HCCF) is the only organization in the State of Hawaii dedicated exclusively to providing services to children with cancer and their families. The foundation provides a wide range of services and programs to families, including financial assistance, social events, education and advocacy. All services and programs that HCCF provides are entirely free to the families in need. The Foundation was formed in 1991 by a group of parents and medical providers after a statewide needs assessment showed that there were many childhood cancer needs not being met by any existing entity. HCCF was granted IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit status in 1993. All funds donated to HCCF remain in Hawai‘i, with 95 cents of every dollar received put towards providing direct services for the children with cancer and their families.
