Reyn Spooner Hosts 3rd Annual Holiday Event to Benefit Make-A-Wish® Hawaii

Reyn Spooner, the Hawaii based business known for its iconic reverse-print shirt designs, will be hosting a special holiday event to benefit Make-A-Wish® Hawaii. The event will take place on Thursday, November 5, 2015 from 6-9 PM at Mariposa in Neiman Marcus, featuring Na Hoku Hano Hano award winning entertainment, heavy pupus and signature cocktails. All proceeds from ticket sales and silent auction will be donated to Make-A-Wish® Hawaii to help grant wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions.

"We are Happy to host our 3rd Annual event to benefit Make-A-Wish Hawaii. What better way to give back this Holiday Season than by granting the wishes of our Island Keiki who are going through some tough times and bring them some joy," said Kirk Hubbard III, President of Reyn Spooner.

This year's holiday event is themed "A Hawaiian Christmas Wish", inspired by Reyn Spooner's 2015 Christmas shirt, featuring postcards of Santa Claus celebrating a Hawaiian Christmas. For over 30 years, Reyn Spooner has celebrated the joy of the Christmas by creating a limited edition, Mele Kalikimaka collection that reflects and captures the spirit of the island lifestyle and holiday traditions. The limited edition, Christmas Aloha shirts have become cherished pieces of history, that are collected and worn around the world.

"We are grateful that for the 3rd year Reyn Spooner has chosen to help Make-A-Wish Hawaii through a wonderful fundraising event," said Siana Austin Hunt, President and Chief Executive Officer of Make-A-Wish Hawaii. "With their support, we can continue to give children who are battling life-threatening medical conditions something to look forward to and plan for. There really is no better gift than that."

The Make-A-Wish holiday event will feature a few of Hawaii's favorite local entertainers including: HAPA, Herb Ohta Jr., Sean Robbins, Jaymie from Keahiwai ("Lei"), Ryan Nakagawa & Usaburo Mendenhall and more. Mariposa will be preparing delicious pupus, while Hawai'i's mixologist Joey Gottesman will create signature, island inspired cocktails. The silent Auction will include Reyn Spooner Limited Edition items, Michel's gift certificates, Mid Pacific Country Club golf certificates, Kualoa Ranch gift certificates, Ala Moana Center gift certificates and lots more.

Health professionals, including doctors and nurses, who treat kids that have been granted a wish are firm believers that the experience of a wish can influence their overall wellbeing, as well as, empower these children to take back control of their lives and to battle their life-threatening medical condition.

Make-A-Wish has become one of the world's largest charities and continues to grow, because of the generosity of local businesses and individual donors. Wishes are 100% privately funded and more than 400 volunteers across all of the islands help to deliver the Make-A-Wish mission with the spirit of Aloha. All proceeds raised in Hawaii will directly benefit local children battling life-threatening illnesses. Please join us in support of a great cause.


About Make-A-Wish:

In 1982, Make-A-Wish® Hawaii was born when local insurance executive Jack Stanford incorporated the organization as the 13th chapter of the national foundation. A chapter that was truly built on the spirit of Aloha, was initially founded to help host the wishes of visiting wish children. Today, the organization is dedicated to granting the wishes of children in Hawaii while maintaining the roots of sharing Aloha with more than 1,000 visiting wish kids each year. The vision of Make-A-Wish Hawaii is to grant the wish of every eligible child in the state and to ensure that eligible keiki receive the life-affirming gift of a wish.
