In partnership with Aloha United Way, HLTA hosted its first annual HLTA AUW Fall Campaign Kick-off event on Tuesday, August 30th at Royal Hawaiian Center's The Royal Grove. Over a hundred industry members and AUW community partners attended the event, which featured live entertainment by Starr Kalahiki and friends, complimentary food and beverages, giveaways, a silent auction and more.
This year, HLTA and AUW have joined together to partner on fundraising efforts, embodying the theme – "We're All in This Together." Kelly Hoen, General Manager at The Modern Honolulu, and Teri Orton, General Manager of the Hawaii Convention Center, are spearheading the Waikiki efforts of the campaign along with HLTA. The island-wide theme of this year's campaign is #JoinTheMovement.
AUW's mission is to encourage individuals of all walks of life to join together to create hope and change the landscape of our community for the better. AUW focuses on 3 impact areas - education, poverty prevention and safety net, which enables the organization to drive and support significant social change.
The campaign runs through Oct. 9. To Join the Movement, you can visit www.auw.org.
