At the Gala, the Beacon of Hope Award will be presented in memoriam to Barry Taniguchi, chairman and CEO of KTA Super Stores, as a special recognition of his leadership in the community and support for American Cancer Society and Hope Lodge Hawaii. The Beacon of Hope Award was established in 2015 to recognize an entity or individual in our community who provides significant contributions to the end the fight against cancer in Hawaii. These advocates demonstrate outstanding commitment to the mission of American Cancer Society in the areas of patient care, advocacy, access to care, research, and health disparities.
Previous Beacon of Hope Honorees:
Steven Ai & City Mill - 2019
Lawrence Rodriguez - 2018
Dr. Reginald Ho - 2017
The Queen's Medical Center - 2016
Galas are a fun and unique way for communities to raise awareness and funds to support the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the world in the fight against cancer.
The 2020 Hope Gala will feature live music, gourmet cuisine and cocktails, and fabulous live and silent auction items.
