EXPLORE: 7th Annual Giovanna Gala

A beautiful Hawaiian sunset, outstanding entertainment, delectable food and the historic Nutridge Estate set the scene for the 7th Annual Giovanna Gala. It was truly an Extravaganza Under the Stars!

Friends gathered on Thursday, August 21, 2014 to support Project Visitation, a program that reunites siblings separated through foster care so they can stay connected for life.

We would like to thank our generous supporters including: Discover Hawaii, OrangeRoc, Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, Wendy McClain and the many donors and volunteers who made the auction such a huge success!


HeART Workshop for all children and youth involved with FPH

45 children demonstrated their artistic talent at the HeART Workshop at the Honolulu Museum of Art on Sunday, April 1st. After a tour of the museum, facilitators instructors Eric Keli‘i Beyer and Emily McIlroy taught watercolor and oil pastel resist to the children and let them create their own masterpiece. HPU graduate students put together the event for FPH as part of their Communications class over the course of the spring semester. “I learned the importance of staying flexible to keep the event running smoothly, which is a valuable skill to learn for any profession,” said Tobias Becker, an HPU grad student who acted as the client liaison.

I Help Kids!

“I would most definitely recommend volunteering. Just seeing the kids laugh and enjoy themselves is very rewarding to me. The program coordinators and parents are also wonderful. Those are the reasons that really make me enjoy the time I spend volunteering." Kyra Blue - FPH Volunteer, RFSS Support Groups in Hilo
