Twenty-fourth Annual Junior Achievement of Hawaii Island Business Hall of Fame

Saturday May 10th, 5pm at the Nani Mau Gardens in Hilo, public invitation to attend a reception honoring our 2014 Hawaii Island inductees; Wayne & Guy Kamitaki, Lynn Ushijima, and Paul Mizoguchi of Ben Franklin Crafts/Ace Hardware.

Junior Achievement of Hawaii Island will also be honoring Oahu inductees with Big Island connections; Sherry Menor-McNamara of The Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii and Jake Shimabukuro, entrepreneur and ukulele extraordinaire.

The purpose of this dinner is multifold: 1) to recognize and honor this year’s inductees, Laureates and families of the Legacy Laureates; 2) to share Junior Achievement success stories with supporters; and 3) to raise funds for JA
programs on our island.

The public is invited to attend. The event will include a buffet dinner, a no-host bar, and silent and live auctions. Tickets are $75.00 individually or $600.00 for a Reserved Table of Eight.

Your support of this event will assist Junior Achievement of Hawaii Island to continue to provide financial literacy programs to more than 4,000 K-12 students annually. Ninety-percent of funds raised will stay on-island and will go directly to pay for classroom materials and program support. It is a wise investment in our future.
