Each year’s event honors the vision of Queen Emma Kaleleonalani and celebrates her living educational legacy,
St. Andrew’s Priory School.
The 2012 event was proud to honor the Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, for their commitment to perpetuate authentic Hawaiian culture and to share it with the world.
Proceeds from the auction and this special evening support the Priory’s scholarship and its financial aid program for this private girls school.
