Chocolate, Champagne, and Couture For-A-Cause 2023
It was such a joy to toast to friends and fashion as we raised awareness and support for women at Chocolate, Champagne, and Couture For-A-Cause 2023. We're grateful for your company and generosity toward our auction, Keys-For-A-Cause, Community Baby Shower and Fund The Mission. We had a fabulous time mingling and networking with old friends, making new ones, all the while supporting our local community and the women within it.
Thank you again to our title sponsors: Alaska Airlines, Neiman Marcus, The Queen's Health Systems, and event hosts: BMW Honolulu, Hawaiian Host Group, HONOLULU Magazine and Johnson Brothers of Hawaii for helping us create such a fun weekend!
