HTA Honored at Na Mea Makamae O Waikiki Event

As the center of Hawaii’s visitor industry, Waikiki’s success is essential to the future of tourism to the state. When people from afar consider Hawaii as a destination, it is more often than not, the iconic images of Waikiki that bid them a warm welcome, inviting them to visit our islands.

In recent years, Waikiki has become more than a tourist destination for hotels, beaches and restaurants. It is a community of people and Hawaii is fortunate that for the past 33 years, the Waikiki Community Center has been a part of the Waikiki community. The center works daily to provide outstanding programs for senior adults, families and children, serving more than 15,000 people every year.

This year, the HTA was honored by the Waikiki Community Center at the 9th Annual Na Mea Makamae O Waikiki Event, Honoring the Treasures of Waikiki. The benefit held on Aug. 26 also recognized the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort & Spa, and the Eddie & Myrna Kamae and the Hawaiian Legacy foundation.
