Taste Your Way Around the Made in Hawaii Festival presented by First Hawaiian Bank

Taste Your Way Around the Made in Hawaii Festival presented by First Hawaiian Bank

There is no excuse for visitors to this year’s Made in Hawaii Festival to go home hungry. With Island chefs putting on cooking demonstrations throughout the three-day festival, and nearly 120 of the 400-plus exhibitors sampling and selling their locally made food products, beverages and fresh produce, the challenge will be deciding how best to navigate all of the culinary choices.

 

Presented by First Hawaiian Bank since its inception 20 years ago, this annual showcase of food, health and beauty products; apparel and accessories; gifts, books, artwork, crafts and other Island-made goods takes place at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena and Exhibition Hall on Friday and Saturday, August 15 and 16, from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Sunday, August 17, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

 

The event also will feature a line-up of award-winning Hawaii musicians on the entertainment stage in the Pikake Room.

Mini-golf charity takes up cause for grief-stricken children in Hawai'i

Called "Fore the Keiki Mini Golf Day," the inaugural charity event's goal is to raise $25,000 for Kids Hurt Too Hawai'i, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide grieving children with a safe space to express feelings about their loss of a parent to divorce, adoption, incarceration or death.

The Hawaii chapter of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors has scheduled the event for 2 pm, Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014 at the Bayview Mini Putt Course in Kaneohe.
