28th Annual Kimona Ball

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Filipino Business Women Association's 28th Annual Kimona Ball honors female Filipino executives in various business industries. It takes place Friday, November 4 at 6 p.m. at Ala Moana Hotel. Tickets cost $55 per person.

The KIMONA is a short blouse made of sheer material, but has evolved into a work of art as designers transform a camisole-like garment into an elegant attire. Equivalent to a mascarade ball, those who attend mask their Kimona with sequence and bling as contestants rally for the top prize. Each year, a Miss Kimona is crowned, following a colorful pageantry parade.

FBWA also awards thousands of dollars in scholarships rewarding student whether or not they aspire to be in business.

To purchase tickets, please call Sandra Sagisi at (808) 228-7274.
