FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 13, 2004
CITY LIGHTS DISPLAY APPLICATION DEADLINE IS AUGUST 27
Non-profit organizations interested in creating a display on the Civic Center grounds during Honolulu City Lights are invited to submit applications to the Department of Customer Services (CSD) by August 27.
CSD will be issuing permits for five display sites via a lottery scheduled for September 13. The lottery will be held at 9 a.m. in the City Hall Annex Conference Room, 550 S. King Street. Applicants are welcome to attend the lottery, but need not be present to be selected.
The annual lottery was started several years ago in response to a request from private groups interested in erecting displays at the same time as the Christmas event. Last year, a dozen groups submitted applications.
Displays chosen through the lottery process will be on view during the same period as Honolulu City Lights. Each organization that is issued a permit will be responsible for the set-up, maintenance and takedown of their display.
Applicants must be bona fide non-profit organizations formed under HRS Chapter 415B or any charitable organization formed pursuant to HRS Chapter 467B or under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue code. Proof of this designation must be submitted with the application by Aug. 27 to be eligible for the lottery.
Interested groups should contact Eric Kimura of the Department of Customer Services at 532-7790 to arrange for a copy of the application and the rules governing the use of the grounds during Honolulu City Lights.
