Hawai‘i Island’s business and civic leaders will honor the remarkable people in our community as part of the YWCA Hawai‘i Island’s centennial celebration.

The event will be held on Thursday, May 16, 2019, at 5:30 p.m. at the University of Hawai‘i Hilo Dining Room. Sponsorship tables and individual tickets are still available.

“In celebration of our 100 years of service, the YWCA of Hawai‘i Island asked our community to nominate the remarkable people in their families or businesses,” said Kathleen McGilvray, CEO of YWCA Hawai‘i Island. “This year’s signature event will celebrate people like Wally Wong, ‘Mrs. K.’ and Rhea Lee, who have made or continue to make Hawai‘i Island a remarkable place to live while raising funds for the critical services we provide to families around the island.”
