Scene: A Red Carpet Premiere
Production: Assets School’s Illumination
Location: Hawaii Convention Center Friday, March 10, 6:00-10:00 p.m.
Join us for the Red Carpet Premiere of Illumination, Lights! Camera! Action!, a star-studded affair to support Assets School.
Assets’ annual fundraising gala, Illumination, celebrates the success of our students and raised over $260,000 last year to support the tuition assistance program. We hope you will join this year and take your place on the red carpet as a table sponsor.
This show stopping event will celebrate our new K-4 Village that is slated to break ground in the summer, and the bursting-at-the-seams enrollment of our high school. Back by popular demand are our celebrity chefs serving their signature foods from favorite eateries around Honolulu and, of course, our live and silent auction, and so much more. Dance the night away to the music of alumnus DJ Miko Franconi.
We are thrilled to honor Dorothy Douthit, former Academy of the Pacific Head of School, where she will receive the Assets Illumination Award for her generous spirit and deep commitment to Hawaii students. Dorothy has impacted countless teens in ways that were life changing for them. Her passion for providing equal education for all has been an inspiration to many educators.
This year’s event will again feature our signature chef tasting stations, hosted by ten of Hawaii’s premier chefs including Goran Streng of Tango Contemporary Cafe, Kevin Nakata of the Hawaii Convention Center, JJ Luangkhot of JJ French Pastry and Bistro, Elmer Guzman of Poke Stop, Michi Watarai of Cooking Fresh, Kevin Hanney of 12th Avenue Grill, Michelle Karr-Ueoka and Wade Ueoka of MW Restaurant and Rodney Uyehara of Blue Note!
Please join us to celebrate our rich history and to look ahead to the new campus improvements, increased enrollment, and endless possibilities of our talented and inspiring students.
