Banquet Fundraiser

July 23, 2017 – Nani Mau Gardens – 4:30 PM to 8:00 PM

Aloha and Welcome to our first Annual Grand Pā‘ina

We gather today to celebrate our community and the supporters of the Lyman Museum. Only with your steadfast advocacy and assistance are we able to maintain and enhance the Museum as a premier place of learning and enjoyment for people of all ages, from Hawai‘i and around the world.

The Lyman Museum has been called “the gem of Hilo,” and has been voted Best Museum in East Hawai‘i by the community every year since 2007. We want to continue to represent our town and Island in such glowing terms … to be considered a primary, “go-to” resource for Island folks, and a destination of choice for domestic and international visitors alike. It is thanks to you that we may continue to do so!

This Pā‘ina is for you: the friends and heroes who sustain the Museum and, in turn, help educate our youth, preserve both the tangibles and intangibles of our history, and share our cultural heritage with all, for generations to come. Mahalo nui loa!
