Mahalo to everyone who attended our first-ever Ho`okanaka Awards Ceremony on May 5! In front of a crowd of more than 200 people, we honored 29 nominees submitted from around Kaua`i, and presented 5 Adult and 5 Youth Awards. Attendees of the event were also treated to a great buffet dinner and entertainment throughout the evening by Na Hoapapa, Paul Togioka, Tommy & Malia Tokioka, the Halau Ka Lei Mokihana, Puni Patrick, and a rockin' finishing set by Kanihou. Mahalo to all the entertainers and volunteers who donated their time to help us celebrate!
