Carole Kai

Carole is the executive producer of Hawaii Stars. She started her career as a pianist/singer in Hawaii night clubs then became a singer/dancer/entertainer, performing in Las Vegas and in major hotels all over the world! Carole was chosen “Newcomer of the Year” by the major Las Vegas newspaper in 1979.

Her real love is helping people, especially those in Hawaii and the military here (her father was in the Army Military Intelligence Corps during world war II). Carole is president of Carole Kai Charities,Inc., which has produced the annual Great Aloha Run since 1985.

She also started the Carole Kai Bed Race for local charities in 1974 and ran it until 1995. She attributes her work ethic and devotion to helping people to her mother, Ethel. She taught Carole that true happiness comes from helping others with no thought of getting back anything (like the old Hawaiians did).
