Lighting Our Way Banquet
Pacific Buddhist Academy’s annual Lighting Our Way Banquet recognizes inspirational community leaders and organizations that exemplify the selfless principles taught at our school. Past honorees include former Hawaii governor George R. Ariyoshi, Vice Admiral (Ret.) Robert Kihune, Brother Noland Conjugacion, the Daniel Pearl Foundation, and, most recently, Dr. Mary G.F. Bitterman, Craig “Bo” Kahui, the Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii (HHMH) Ministers Association, and the HHMH Spouses Association.
Proceeds from the Banquet, a partnership event with our Board of Trustees, students, faculty/staff, and our wider community, are designated for our Annual Campaign to continue to educate generations of students who will light the way for peace in Hawai‘i and beyond.
