The 2010 Fundraiser – The Über Awards

Hawaii Women’s Legal Foundation will be hosting its 2010 Gala Fundraiser, “The Über Awards: Stepping onto the Red Carpet for Glory or Shame” on Saturday, October 9, 2010, at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel – Maui and Kaua’i Ballrooms.  This annual fundraiser, which is renowned for its unique entertainment value, will feature a wine reception and silent auction at 5:30 p.m., with dinner to follow at 7:00 p.m.

The silent auction will include unique collectable artwork, along with certificates for hotel and resort stays, award-winning restaurants and golf rounds.

Previous years have been rich with political satire, featuring singing and dancing politicians, attorneys and other notable performers.

This year, HWLF will present – not the Oscars or the Grammies or the Nobels – but an award of its own invention, “The Über Awards.”  Only by attending will you find out what an “Über Award” is and who will receive one!

Colbert Matsumoto, Chair and CEO of Island Insurance Company Ltd., and one of the event’s Honorary Co-Chairs, has said “HWLF is a most deserving organization.  Its fundraising proceeds benefit the women and children of Hawaii.  In the past, HWLF has awarded grants to Waikiki Health Center, Children’s Alliance of Hawaii, Hawaii Literacy, YWCA, Legal Aid Society of Hawaii, the Domestic Violence Action Center, and the Kukui Children’s Foundation.”

Paula Yoshioka, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of The Queen’s Medical Center, and the event’s other Honorary Co-Chair, has remarked that “HWLF, together with its sister organization, Hawaii Women Lawyers, were the recipients of the National Conference of Women’s Bar Associations’ 2009 Public Service award, in recognition of their “Mother’s Day Project,” where over 2,000 gifts were created for deserving children to give to their mothers, who could not otherwise afford to do so.”

The red carpet awaits you at the Gala Fundraiser!  You don’t want to miss what promises to be a most amusing and unforgettable evening!

Tables may be purchased as follows:  “Über Diamond Table” for $5,000; “Über Platinum Table” for $3,000; “Über Gold Table” for $2,000; Individual seats for $200.
