An Everlasting Legacy of GivingA 150th anniversary celebration fundraising event, "An Everlasting Legacy of Giving" was held at The Kahala Hotel & Resort on August 14. U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye and Mrs. Irene Hirano Inouye served as Honorary Co-Chairs of the event, which raised over $230,000 with 370 guests in attendance.

In addition to the distinguished co-chairs, the event featured Eric K. Keawe, who reflected on the exceptional care his mother, Aunty Genoa Keawe, received at Queen's in the last stages of her life until her death in February 2008. Accompanying herself on the ukulele, Pomaika'i Keawe Lyman, daughter of Eric and granddaughter of Aunty Genoa, moved the audience with her rendition of "For a Peaceful World," written by Irmgard Aluli.

Queen's Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President Mark Yamakawa donated 37 glass and ceramic pieces which he created. A silent auction was held for the works of art, which were a part of the centerpiece on each table. Naleen Andrade, M.D., Chair of the QHS Board of Trustees, closed the successful event by thanking the patrons and comparing them to the first subscribers of The Queen's Hospital. "Giving to Queen’s began in the mid-1800s," she said, "it's not much different today." She also recalled how the Queen devoted herself to her hospital in spite of the "crushing grief" she felt over the loss of her child and husband. Concluding, Dr. Andrade called on our Founders, King Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma, to be our guides into the future. Proceeds from the event will be used to support programs and services at The Queen's Medical Center.
