Description

Aloha,

On behalf of the officers and members of the Honolulu Hawaii Branch NAACP, please join us at the 16th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Awards Gala on Saturday, January 19, 2019. This year we will be celebrating the 58th Anniversary of our branch. We are dedicating the year to community partners and have selected the theme “Engaging and Empowering through Collaborative Partnerships!

The celebration will be held at the Dole Cannery Pomaikai Ballroom – Iwilei, 735 Iwilei Road Honolulu, HI 96817. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception and silent auction kickoff at 6:00 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:00 p.m. and awards presentation at 7:45 p.m.

We will present the NAACP Lifetime Achievement Award for Distinguished Service to Bishop Michael Henderson; the NAACP Community Partnership Award to the “It Takes a Village”; and a Special Community Service Award to African American Diversity Cultural Center Hawaii. Additionally, we will present the NAACP Outstanding Youth Leadership Award to Kristen Brown and our legacy scholarships will be presented to deserving college students. On Sunday, January 20, 2019, we will present the NAACP Religious Leadership Award to Rev. Dr. Anthony Cook during our Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Gospel Service.

The Honolulu Hawaii NAACP is grateful for your past support of this multi-cultural celebration and we look forward to continued collaboration. Please demonstrate your commitment to the legacy of Dr. King by making a contribution to the silent auction and by attending this commemorative event. Your contribution will greatly assist us in our efforts to achieve social justice for all people.

Mahalo nui loa for your kokua!

Sincerely,

Alphonso Braggs President
