Join us to celebrate this year’s Champions for Children and raise funds to support Hawaiʻi’s keiki.

Live virtual ceremony • April 7, 2021 • 6–7 pm

This year, HCAN’s awards will honor community members who went above and beyond to support kids during COVID-19. A panel of judges is evaluating nearly 90 public nominations.

Tune in to this live, virtual ceremony as we announce the award winners and hear their amazing stories.

Funds raised during the event will go directly toward HCAN’s work to ensure that all keiki are healthy, safe, and ready to learn.

A night to remember!
