Silent Auction

Working in healthcare makes a difference in people’s lives and has a great impact on families.  We want to help those who are passionate about the well-being of others in the hospitals, nursing facilities and community setting.  Choosing to work in the healthcare field requires a great deal of education.  Donating to our Silent Auction will help HAH give healthcare scholarships to students who are the future of healthcare in Hawaii.  These students are motivated and dedicated individuals who want to pursue their goals in becoming excellent healthcare workers.

We are kindly accepting donations until September 29.  Each donor will be recognized at our event and listed on our website.
