WAIKIKI (KHNL) - Honolulu residents are rounded up for a good time and a good cause!

People put on their hats and boots for a western style event at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.  Along with dinner and dancing, there were all kinds of games, shopping and entertainment.

But this event also has a serious side, as it ropes in money for the American Cancer Society.

"I know it's thousands and thousands of dollars and we're very appreciative, particularly with an economy like our to have people come out and support us, cause it's not just the ticket price and the games it's the silent auction, and it all goes to a great cause to try and find that cure for cancer," said Senator Rosalyn Baker (D) Maui.

The day's dreary weather didn't stop hundreds from getting on their best western outfits and lassoing in this annual themed fundraiser.
