Non-profit organizations interested in creating displays on the Civic Center grounds during the annual Honolulu City Lights exhibition are invited to submit applications to the Neighborhood Commission Office by Friday, November 14.

Permits will be issued for five display sites via a lottery scheduled for Monday,

November 17.  The lottery will be held at 10:30 a.m. in the Mayor’s Conference Room, 3rd Floor, 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 holiday event.

Displays chosen through the lottery process will be on view during the same period as Honolulu City Lights.  Each organization that receives 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 November 14, 2008 to be eligible for the lottery.

This year, due to ongoing construction and renovations on the Civic Center grounds, the five display sites have been relocated to ensure public safety.  The new location is between Honolulu Hale and the Mission Memorial Auditorium.

Interested groups should contact Joan Manke in the Neighborhood Commission Office at 768-3710 to request a copy of the application and the rules governing the use of the grounds during Honolulu City Lights.
