Hulihe‘e benefit is slated
The picturesque, seaside grounds of Hulihe‘e Palace will be the location of the annual spring fundraiser, “Day at Hulihe‘e,” on Saturday, March 30.
An 8:30 a.m. traditional Hawaiian blessing kicks off the 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. event, which is hosted by palace caretakers the Daughters of Hawai‘i and the Calabash Cousins.
Browse through tented arts and crafts booths, a tempting bake sale featuring Aunty Nona’s scrumptious peach cake and the ever-popular Classy Tutu’s Attic.
Choose a fresh flower lei made on site by palace volunteers. The Kuakini Hawaiian Civic Club will offer ono food and local hula halau will provide cultural entertainment.
Prize drawings throughout the day will be featured. Palace admission will be complimentary all day, although donations will be accepted.
“Day at Hulihe‘e” remembers Hawaii’s Citizen Prince, who was born in March: Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole (1871-1922.)
Hawaii observes an annual statewide holiday to commemorate Prince Kuhio’s dedication toward serving his people; it’s Tuesday, March 26, in 2013.
Hulihe‘e Palace is open for self-guided tours. Museum and gift shop hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
Hulihe‘e Palace admission remains $6 for adults, $4 for seniors and $1 for keiki under 18.
For details, contact the palace at 329-1877, the palace office at 329-9555.
