HONOLULU FOREVER YOUNG AWARDS

 

            (Wednesday, June 24, 2009) -- This is the last week to submit nominations for the Honolulu Forever Young Awards.  The deadline is Tuesday, June 30, 2009, at 4:00 p.m.

 

For more information about the awards and to submit nominations online, please visit www.HonoluluForeverYoung.org.

 

            The awards are part of the City’s Honolulu Forever Young campaign, which aims to change the perception of retirement and aging by honoring those who continue to accomplish great things in their later years through their involvement in business careers; giving back to the community through mentoring, philanthropy, and volunteerism; and serving as role models for future generations.

 

            The 2008 Honolulu Forever Young Award recipients were: Dr. Satoru Izutsu, Daniel B.T. Lau, Tom Moffatt, Mary Y. Matayoshi, William Paty, and James W.Y. Wong, with the Manawalea Award going to Rose Nakamura.

 

            This year’s winners will be announced on July 27, 2009, and will be honored at an awards luncheon at the Hawaii Prince Hotel on September 23, 2009.
