Event Venue 

The Ko'olau Ballrooms and Conference Center is located on the Windward side of O’ahu at the base of the Ko'olau Mountains in verdant Kane'ohe.  The center offers world class facilities and service, alongside cuisine cooked by an Award Winning Executive Chef. 

Welcome desks and displays will greet guests at the Indoor Waterfall area alongside the brass and marble accented indoor atrium. Guests will then be directed to the beautiful Ko'olau Glass Ballroom to catch up with old friends, mingle, listen to live entertainment, and observe the sunset. Heavy pupus and no-host bars will be available during this time. Guests then will move to the Grand Ballroom with a panoramic view of the Ko`olau mountain range for a sit-down dinner, announcement of DURP awards and scholarships, and the highlight of the evening: a Roast of our friend Tom.

Transportation to the Event

In support of MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), we are exploring alternatives means of transportation for those who do not wish to drive to an event where alcohol is being served.  A trolley shuttle may be available, but details have not yet been finalized.  We also encourage attendees to consider using the services of Charleys Taxi, which offers motorists the opportunity to take a cab home with one of their drivers following you in your car (a double fare taxi ride).  We will reach out to Event registrants with more information as the date of Event nears.
