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

CFS Legends of HOPE

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. These fearless performers, including the CFS Board of Directors and volunteers, don wigs, high heels, kinky boots and break out those jazz hands, all to raise funds to support the work of Child & Family Service. 

To honor 11 years of these entertaining performances by 46 of Hawaii’s most fearless leaders, we invite you to join us for a trip down memory lane to see just how far they will go to strengthen Hawaii families. Please enjoy our most memorable moments and share your aloha and applause by voting in honor of your favorite performers ~ affectionately known as our "CFS Legends of Hope"!
