Join us on Saturday, October 21st at the swanky Modern Honolulu as we bring back big hair, neon lights, slick white suits and bad, bad, bad, bad boys in to style.

This year’s event will benefit three local non-profit organizations that we selected because of their diverse programs that serve our keiki and families across the state.

ALLIANCE FOR DRAMA EDUCATION
THE ALLIANCE FOR DRAMA EDUCATION (ADE) is a non-profit dedicated to using the arts to help make a difference in today’s youth. T-Shirt Theatre (TST) is ADE’s flagship program and is a Community of Practice where youth from Farrington High School and Kalakaua and Dole Middle Schools come together around the practice of dramatic arts.

Chaminade Mobile STEM Outreach Program
“I AM A SCIENTIST”, Chaminade’s mobile STEM outreach program was created and developed by Chaminade researcher, Lori Shimoda, to inspire the next generation of scientists. Through this outreach program, Chaminade University research faculty visit Oahu elementary and middle schools with a need for increased STEM capacity to 2,000 children annually across 20 public schools.

HUGS
EXPANDING PEER SUPPORT FOR NEIGHBOR ISLAND FAMILIES WITH SERIOUSLY ILL CHILDREN. The mission of HUGS is to strengthen Hawaii’s families and improve their quality of life as they face the emotional and financial hardships of caring for a seriously ill child. This year’s GIFT grant will allow HUGS to build a sustainable peer support system for families with a seriously ill child from our neighbor island communities.
