MEDIA RELEASE

Day at Hulihee is still happening 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, March 26.

The Daughters of Hawaii and Calabash Cousins will kick off the annual festive fundraiser on the palace grounds with a traditional Hawaiian blessing at 8:30 a.m.

Browse among tented arts and crafts booths, a tempting bake sale featuring Aunty Nona’s scrumptious peach cake and the ever-popular “Classy Tutu” Tutu’s Attic. The Kuakini Hawaiian Civic Club will offer ono food and local hula halau will provide colorful cultural entertainment.

There will also be 10 prize drawings for locally created art at 3 p.m.

Day at Hulihee remembers Hawaii’s Citizen Prince who was born in March, Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole (1871-1922). Hawaii observes a statewide holiday to commemorate Prince Kuhio’s dedication toward serving his people March 25.

Beginning in 1902, Kuhio served as a delegate to the U.S. Congress for 10 terms, was the driving force behind the development of Pearl Harbor and instituted the Hawaiian Homestead Commission.

A monument at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park credits Prince Kuhio for founding the park in 1916.

Contact the palace at 329-1877, the palace office at 329-9555 or visit www.daughtersofhawaii.org. The gift shop can be reached at 329-6558.

Caretakers of Hulihee Palace are the Daughters of Hawaii. The organization was founded in 1903 and opens membership to any woman who is directly descended from a person who lived in Hawaii prior to 1880.

Helping the Daughters in its efforts since 1986 are the Calabash Cousins; membership is available to all.
