The evening's entertainment will be provided by Ahi Wela, a group comprised of Honolulu firefighters, and will be emceed by Robert Carvalho. Guests will also be able to participate in a silent auction that will include hotel stays, rounds of golf, dining certificates and more.

Proceeds will directly benefits HFD firefighters and their efforts to serve and protect our community, and will continue to support the Honolulu Fire Museum and Education Center on South Street by offering free admission to the public, as well as recognize HFD fire recruits as they graduate and join the firefighters who protect our community.
