Event Details

On Tuesday, June 7, you are invited to an invitation-only cocktail reception at the Ho‘okupu Center where we will reveal this year’s winners! This reception happens two months prior to the big annual gala Hale ‘Aina Awards celebration in September, which is open to the public.

If you received an invitation to this reception, that means you are a winner—but which category you won, and whether it’s a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Finalist, will be announced at this exciting, industry-only event. Winners of the Best New Restaurant, and Restaurateur of the Year will also be announced at this event.

Celebrate with your fellow winners as you enjoy tasty bites and cocktails.

All attending restaurants will receive a plaque commemorating your award to use in your restaurant. (If you do not attend this event, plaques will only be available for purchase. They are only complimentary for attendees.)

We can’t wait to celebrate with you!

Tickets are $50 per person and include:

  • Pūpū stations by the Ho‘okupu culinary team
  • 2 tickets for beer or wine
  • Plaque for display at your restaurant
  • Complimentary Valet Parking
