Help us raise funds to help Oahu’s growing senior population live independently in health and dignity. Last year, we delivered more than 97,000 meals on Oahu. This year, we are on track to deliver more than 100,000 meals. We will be honoring Kahala Nui, our inaugural “Kupuna Advocate of the Year.”

We’ll have our Country Store, silent auction, Wall of Wine, intuitive readings, massage tables, and two new activities:

  1. Pick a Pearl for a jewel box with matching white pearl pendant and ear rings.
  2. Heads and Tails for matching Manaola clutch and handbag.

See you on September 21 at Honolulu Country Club!
