  • U.S.VETS – Barbers Point Donor and Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon

As guests walked through the scenic garden entrance, staff greeted each guest as they proceeded through the doors of the Kapa’akea Room. Everyone enjoyed the acoustic Hawaiian sounds from Na Hoku Hanohano award winner, Kamuela Kahoano. As the formal program began community supporters and fundamental partners were honored and recognized for their vital role in supporting U.S.VETS – Barber’s Point site’s mission during the 2014 fiscal year.

The event’s highlight was the standing ovation that U.S.VETS - Barber’s Point’s success story, Mr. Damien Hanuna, received as he shared his personal journey of success to all who attended. Damien is an example of why we as staff members of U.S.VETS do what we do every day.
