“We are grateful to our Young Leaders Board and Lemman Family Foundation for making this exciting new event possible,” says Trini Kaopuiki Clark, president and CEO of Make-a-Wish Hawai‘i. “The Young Leaders Board has a mantra, ‘for da keiki,’ and this event brings that to life—music, dancing, elevated food and beverages reminiscent of childhood—all in support of granting wishes for the 89 children across the state who are waiting for their wish to come true.”
