Though we wish we could gather together at HPA under a starry Waimea sky for our annual fundraising event, there is still much to celebrate and honor—and we are grateful for the opportunity to bring Alu Mai right to your living room or lanai. Join us at 6:00 p.m. HST on November 21, 2020 to remember, to talk story, to uplift, to connect, and to enjoy. If that time doesn’t work for you, you are welcome to enjoy the event at a later point and show your support using the same event link.

This carefully crafted evening will honor the spirit of one special place—and its people: our Ka Makani. Please join in during this time when we have come to rely so strongly on the bonds that can transcend physical boundaries. There will be opportunities through the evening to show your support for financial aid and to celebrate the breadth and depth of our ‘ohana.

If you are planning to host a few folks in your bubble for a fun and festive screening at your home to celebrate, please sign up here! We would love to send along some Alu Mai 2020 host goodies to enhance the evening’s magic. Please remind your guests to register as well! Email alumai@hpa.edu or call us at 808-881-4076 if you have any questions.

Spirit of giving

Each year, generous donors to our financial aid program help to make the HPA Experience possible for students like this one, who wrote a brief note of thanks.

Make a Gift for Financial Aid

As many of you know, Alu Mai is an evening in support of Financial Aid at HPA. In the past we have raised our paddles through auction excitement to open doors for deserving students to attend HPA. With this year’s pivot to a virtual celebration, we are asking our HPA ‘ohana to show their support by making a gift online. All gifts at any level will make a big difference for this cornerstone program at HPA, a program that provides over half of our student body tuition assistance.

With Alu Mai produced in advance and free to all this year, we hope that it encourages all of our HPA ‘ohana to follow the meaning of the event’s name, and join in! Wherever you are, watch Alu Mai, reconnect with your time at HPA, and feel inspired to turn your aloha into action by making a gift for financial aid. Support at any level makes a difference — thank you for your commitment to Ka Makani.
