Welcome to HOPE SHINES THROUGH: A Story of Resilience with Paula Fuga - presented by CPB Foundation and Child & Family Service

Ever wonder how far we will go to help strengthen Hawaii families? 

This website is a tribute to the Board of Directors and volunteers who don wigs, high heels, kinky boots and break out those jazz hands, all to raise funds to suppor the work of Child & Family Service.

Since 2009, CFS has spotlighted Hawaii leaders as performers in dance routines and skits at our Annual Gala, to raise funds that support our work strengthening the families of Hawaii. In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, we are taking our gala virtual this year to honor these fearless performers ~ affectionately known as our “CFS Legends of Hope.”

To honor 11 years of entertaining performances by 46 of Hawaii’s most fearless leaders, we invite you to join us for a trip down memory lane. Please enjoy our most memorable moments and share your aloha and applause by voting for your favorite CFS Legends of Hope!

It is because of their love of our mission, that we have been able to continue strengthening families and fostering the healthy development of children! 

Through a committee of their peers, the Legends of Hope have been nominated in 8 categories:

Showstopper: Best Group Performance
Fab Footwork: Best Group Choreography
Biggest Diva: Best Female Performer
Mr. Big Stuff: Best Male Performer
Most Enjoyable Group Performance
Best Superstar Transformation
Best Buzz: Most Creative Promo
Best Co-Chair(s) Performance

Click on a category above to view the nominees and cast your votes!

Voting ends April 23, 2021 at 11:59pm!

Votes for nominees will increase awareness of the important work that CFS does, while also raising vital funding needed to support our mission. Please join us by voting for your favorite performances today!

Winners will be announced during a television broadcast featuring Child & Family Service. Stay tuned for more details!
