Mahalo Once Upon a Wish! Volunteers

Mahalo to all our volunteers who made our 5th Annual Wish! Gala an enchanted evening full of magic and wonder!

You helped us create an unforgettable event that allowed guests to leave the world behind and step foot into our Once Upon a Wish fairytale at the Sheraton Waikiki. Your hard work was seen throughout the fantastical event; whether you helped set up the ballroom, the silent auction area, or "brought the light" by passing out lightsabers, you created the magic that guests saw and felt throughout the evening. 

Flip through the slideshow below to see photos of volunteers at Once Upon a Wish! And check out more photos from the event on our Facebook page.

If you have photos from the event, upload them onto Facebook with #hiwishgala.
