For our fourth year, the Friends are honoring “friends” of the Friends. Tickets are now available right here. Please click on BUY TICKETS at the bottom of this post. This year we honor Bill Miller of Discount Fabric Warehouse and the Akaka Falls Lions Club. This year the Gala will be at the UH Hilo Campus Center, with No Host cocktails and Silent Auction beginning at 5:30pm followed by dinner and program at 6:30pm.
Both entities have helped the Friends. Bill Miller has spearheaded the “Bags of Hope” for children who are removed from their living situation. Oftentimes, the child’s belongings are stuffed into a large trash bag, making the children feel like trash themselves. Bill organized volunteer sewists to come and make duffle bags using his donated fabric. What a difference these bags make!
The Akaka Fall Lions Club has been a faithful friend over many years, especially helping with refurbishment of the Center’s house. Cleaning, painting, replacing… this Lions Club has done it all. Please consider joining us for an evening of celebration and fun!
