Donate to our Silent Auction and Help Us Give Healthcare Scholarships







The Hawai`i Hospital Education and Research Foundation (HHERF) Silent Auction, to be held in conjunction with our Healthcare Association of Hawai`i’s Annual Awards & Scholarship Gala on October 21.  Last year we were able to award scholarships to fifteen Hawai`i students entering or continuing their education in the healthcare field!

Donating to our Silent Auction will help HAH give scholarships to students who are the future of healthcare in Hawai`i. These students are motivated and dedicated individuals who want to pursue their goals in becoming healthcare workers such as:

  • The emergency responder when you or a family member needs immediate medical attention.
  • The healthcare professional who is thrilled each time they bring a new life into the world or save a life from ending.
  • The therapist who assists with occupational, physical or speech therapy.
  • The hospice worker who helps a family prepare for a loved one’s transition.

Please help support our future healthcare professionals!

Donations are due by October 13, 2017.  If you have questions, please contact Sharie Higashionna-Ibarra at sibarra@hah.org or (808) 521-8961.
