Don Ho, the iconic Waikiki entertainer, has married his longtime associate, Haumea Hebenstreit.
The wedding took place in Hawai'i in September, friends say. Rings were not exchanged.
The couple, who've long gone to great lengths to keep their private life private, declined comment.
It is the second marriage for Ho, 76, who stars in a long-running revue at the Hoku Hale Showroom at the Ohana Waikiki Beachcomber Hotel, where he's been since 1994. Hebenstreit, a hula soloist in the show, is executive producer for the Ho show.
RED CROSS TO GET GIFT FROM REICHEL
"Kawaipunahele," the CD that launched Keali'i Reichel's career as a singer, still is doing good deeds, producing a large donation for the local Red Cross.
Reichel's record label, Punahele Productions, teamed up with Borders Hawai'i last March through July, earmarking proceeds from Reichel's debut disc for flood relief from the 42 continuous days of rain in the Islands. Nearly 6,000 were sold.
On Tuesday, a check for $30,000 will be presented to the Hawai'i Chapter of the Red Cross.

JOLIE BODYGUARDS ARRESTED IN FRACAS
MUMBAI, India — Police arrested three British bodyguards working for Angelina Jolie after they allegedly roughed up parents and students at a Mumbai school where the actress had been filming scenes for "A Mighty Heart."
All were freed on bail and ordered not to leave the country for one week.
The fracas took place Thursday when the gates of the Anjuman-e-Islam school, which had been locked during filming, were opened to let parents pick up their children.
Jolie blamed the large number of photographers and cameramen for the scuffle at the school. "It is not surprising that the press involved failed to mention their share of responsibility in the chaos," she said.
