Maui resident, Mick Fleetwood has become a valuable member of our community by contributing selflessly of his time and resources to numerous local causes including being on the advisory board of Maui Memorial Medical Center. He also dedicates time and resources to national causes including the ALS Project, AIDS Foundation, the Maui Heartwalk and more. Said Fleetwood, “I just got back from the big fundraiser in Waikiki where some 29 artists performed to help raise 1.6 million for the Japan relief. I’m equally supportive of programs like this carwash right in my own community because I believe that if every community came together and did programs such as this, the total effect could be so beneficial.”
In addition to his renowned music career he has had success with an acting career and has also co-written two books, including the NY Times Best Seller, My Life and Adventures in Fleetwood Mac. In addition to these other projects Mick manages his own wine enterprise, Mick Fleetwood Private Cellar. Mick is planning the opening of a major restaurant and wine tasting establishment at the previous location of the Lahaina Store and Oyster Bar (formerly Planet Hollywood) to be called Fleetwood’s on Front St. Charity is a main goal for the establishment which plans to feature Hawaiian culture blended with a Colonial style, said a spokesperson.
