Shame of Thrones: Election is Coming

The next FUNdraiser, Shame of Thrones: Election is Coming, is on Saturday, October 1, 2016, at 5:30 p.m. at the Tapa Ballroom at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

Please join us and our honorary co-chairs, Lance Mizumoto (Central Pacific Bank) and Emily Reber Porter (The MacNaughton Group), for an epic adventure into a world of medieval fantasy as we celebrate HWLF’s 26th Annual Fundraiser. This year’s theme is a creative spin on the hit television series, Game of Thrones, which presents an uncanny parallel to recent escapades in our nation’s politics. (See here or here for more about Game of Thrones.) There’s much to enjoy at the fundraiser:

ENTERTAINMENT! Enjoy a show full of local legal, community, and business stars! You won’t want to miss this year’s live on-stage program, filled with plot twists and turns, intrigue, and surprises!

ATTIRE: Please feel free to come dressed in your finest medieval attire or as your favorite Game of Thrones character, such as Tyrion Lannister, Jon Snow (alive, dead, or resurrected), the Mother of Dragons, or even one of the dragons! Of course, dressing as one of our current contestants for the presidential throne would also be very appropriate.

SHOPPING! Finish your Christmas shopping at the Silent Auction & Wine Reception!

FUN & PHILANTHROPY! Imbibe, shop, eat, laugh, and dance, knowing that all that legal fun contributes (100% of net proceeds!) to extremely worthy local grassroots organizations that accomplish vital work…

Join us! There’s FUN in FUNdraising!

Highlights from 2015: “BOOTS & BLING: A Country Western Soiree” knocked our socks off!

Your boots were made for walkin’…and they danced right on over for the amazingly glamorous evening of Country Western grandeur! Attendees shined up those boots, buckles, and bling and came dressed to impress! We enjoyed the amazing talents of legal professionals and community leaders in a show complete with a good ol’ fashioned showdown! Some of Hawai῾i’s most beloved judges, business-folk, and other special guests saddled-up to save the State from utter disaster!
