Bid for vacation dreams
How about golf and lunch with young phenom Tad Fujikawa? Or four club-level tickets to see the Denver Broncos, or a private plane flight to Maui, or a trip for two to Las Vegas to see the University of Hawaii play the University of Nevada-Las Vegas?
Bid high enough and collect those items at a silent auction to raise cash for Help, Understanding & Group Support -- better known as HUGS.
HUGS is launching a yearlong 25th-anniversary celebration with a benefit on May 18 at the Pacific Beach Hotel.
"Ho'okumu i ka Hana Le'a" ("our canoe has launched") will include grab-bag tables, a performance by Keahiwai, food, cocktails and the silent auction.
Tickets are $150; premium tables for 10 seats are $2,000 to $5,000. Call 732-4846.
