Hale Keiki School hosts many fundraisers each school year, benefitting numerous aspects of our school operation and students' wellbeing.
STARS & STRIPES AUCTION
Each year, HKS hosts its annual dinner and auction event, Stars & Stripes, at the Honolulu Country Club. The evening is filled with unique items donated by dozens of local vendors or handmade by HKS students, all up for grabs by silent bidding or at our exciting live auction. Our signature dessert auction also boasts a delightful display of treats ready to take home. The inspirational night is topped off with a crowd favorite, a patriotic presentation by our keiki.
This event's proceeds support the school's vision of future expansion efforts. After numerous years and detailed work from many offices, legislation was recently passed granting Hale Keiki School the opportunity to purchase the land on which the school stands. This is wonderful news as the interest in enrollment exceeds current capacity. This land purchase will facilitate the building of additional classrooms to serve more students.
At auctions in recent years, we have welcomed over 140 guests and earned over $20,000.
LEAVE A LEGACY. LEAVE A MEMORY. LAST A LIFETIME.
We are very excited to offer Legacy Bricks to our amazing `ohana! HKS touches so many lives. It is with great respect and admiration that many alumni look back on their time with HKS. The bricks give you an opportunity to express this admiration to teachers, staff, and all `ohana.
It is heart-warming to watch every child and teacher at HKS recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the National Anthem each morning around the flagpole and Legacy Brick Walk. The patriotism and pride in these children is inspirational.
You can also take place in this tradition by placing your message around the flagpole.

Each fall, HKS participates in Give Aloha, Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program. This program honors Foodland’s founder, Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan, and continues his legacy of giving back to the community. As we gear up for our capital campaign, the Give Aloha program is a great way to donate to your child’s school.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
From September 1-30, customers are invited to make donations up to $249 to participating Hawaii non-profit organizations at checkout. Individuals must use their own Maika’i cards to make donations. Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match a portion of each donation made with a Maika’i card. Donations made without a Maika’i card will not be matched.
No matter the amount you give, 100% of your donation will go towards the continuing effort to improve our school. Hale Keiki will receive an additional gift from Foodland and Western Union Foundation matching a percentage of the total donations for all organizations participating in the campaign. Every donation received will increase our share of the total matching dollars. For more about Give Aloha, please visit www.foodland.com.
TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE MATCHING GIFT
The Western Union Foundation has generously donated $50,000 to add to Foodland’s gift of $250,000 to Hawaii non-profit organizations participating in Give Aloha this year. Therefore, the total gift that will be given to all participating organizations combined is $300,000!
