Historic Hawai‘i Foundation is very pleased to honor Kelvin H. Taketa as the 2017 Kama‘āina of the Year™ at Historic Hawai‘i Foundation’s annual fundraiser benefit on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

Please join us in celebrating Kelvin’s visionary leadership and outstanding contributions to making Hawai‘i a better place.  Enjoy a delicious farm-to-table menu and live entertainment created exclusively for this event, as we pay homage to themes of community building and the preservation of family legacies and heritage.

Opportunities to support and participate in the event are listed below.

“We get to do great stuff,” says Taketa. “We get to aspire to make a big difference and we get to work with really good people. There is not a lot left to be desired after that. Each trust has a story, and it is our job not just to manage the money, but to keep those stories alive.”

Kelvin and the staff of Hawaii Community Foundation celebrated the Foundation’s 100th anniversary in 2016
