Pick a date, time, and location. Would you like to host coffee hour or dinner? At a coffee shop, restaurant, or your home? What works best for you and your guests will make for the right gathering.
Life is ALWAYS better with friends so ask a friend to host WITH you! Invite your community to support you and in hosting this event.
A restaurant owner may want to support by giving you a discount or a friend may bring a signature dish to your home. A neighbor may share some beautiful flowers from their yard.
Keep things simple ~ we don’t want to create added stress in your life and we want you to enjoy this experience of advocacy.
Invite the number of people you are comfortable with hosting at a location that will provide a good experience for you and your guests.
A Bright Futures Gathering is new to our community but a personal invitation from you will be familiar and welcoming to them. Just as you would invite a friend to dinner, personally invite your friends and colleagues to fill the table. Your invitation will let them know that this is an opportunity for you to share with them your advocacy for the mission of Ho‘ōlaNā Pua and an opportunity for them to learn about support Ho‘ōlaNā Pua if they would like to.
Invite Ho‘ōlaNā Pua staff, 2-3 depending on the number of guests you invite, to attend the event to share about the work of Ho‘ōlaNā Pua, to assist with planning the event, and to facilitate any support or involvement your guests may want to contribute.

Thank your friends for coming and Ho‘ōlaNā Pua will follow up with a mahalo card as well.
“Ho`ōla Nā Pua, meaning ‘New Life for Our Children,’ was founded to shine light onto the dark criminal enterprise of sex trafficking, placing the health of Hawaii’s youth at the center of our mission and vision for our community.”
