About Kahau Kones
Kahau Kones was founded by Matthew Sostrom in 2018, then just a junior in high school. Kahau [ka-how] means snow in Hawaiian! Kahau Kones sells the finest shaved ice you'll ever have. Ice is shredded right in front of your eyes, and you get to flavor it yourself with any of Kahau Kones' delicious flavors, ranging from the classic Cherry and Blue Raspberry, to the fun and unique Spongebob flavor, which tastes just like his pineapple home. [Flavors offered change consistently and not all flavors may be available at any given event]. In addition, Kahau Kones sells the world's first fluorescent shaved ice! Made not with magic but with Vitamin B2, a natural supplement found in almost every food, it creates a supernatural feel, perfect for any glow-in-the-dark parties!
In January 2020, Kahau Kones attempted to break the current Guinness World Record for the heaviest shaved ice ever made. The previous record was 3426 pounds, and Kahau Kones, over the course of just 4 hours, created a shaved ice weighing 5097 pounds! However, we are still pending official confirmation from Guinness World Records.
Kahau Kones has worked with nearly every school in the Scottsdale and Paradise Valley school districts, as well as many charter schools. A huge selling point of Kahau Kones is that it gives 33% of event sales back to the organization! For example, let's say your PTO is hosting a carnival, if Kahau Kones has $1000 in sales, your PTO just made $333! We sell joy through delicious shaved ice! In just 2 short years, over $5000 has been given back to our local PTOs!
We're excited to work with you to create the best fundraiser for your school. We do all the work by selling the shaved ice! To contact us, please head over to our EVENTS page.
