CITY LIGHTS DISPLAY APPLICATION DEADLINE

IS OCTOBER 18

 

            Non-profit organizations interested in creating a display on the Civic Center grounds during Honolulu City Lights are invited to submit applications to the City's Department of Customer Services (CSD) by October 18, 2006.

 

            The department will issue permits for five display sites via a lottery on November 1.  The lottery will be held at 10 a.m. in the Mission Memorial Auditorium, 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 that wanted to erect displays during the month-long annual holiday  festival.

 

            Displays chosen through the lottery process will be on view during the same period as Honolulu City Lights, December 2 to December 31.  Each organization that receives a permit will be responsible for the set-up, maintenance and takedown of its 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 October 18 to be eligible for the lottery.

 

            Interested groups should contact Patty Teruya, special events coordinator of the Department of Customer Services, at 527-5759 to request a copy of the application and the rules governing the use of the grounds during Honolulu City Lights.
