Farewell to former gov

The United Filipino Council of Hawaii will honor former Gov. Ben Cayetano with a farewell dinner, "Tribute -- A Mabuhay Celebration," taking place Thursday at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Coral Ballroom.

The testimonial event will begin with no-host cocktails at 6 p.m., followed by the 7 p.m. dinner sponsored by the Filipino community.

In a letter, UFCH president Dwayne Bueno wrote: "Gov. Cayetano is the pride and joy of Filipinos around the world, being the first Filipino elected as governor in the United States of America. His election made him the highest-ranking official of Filipino ancestry outside of the Republic of the Philippines."
