18th Annual Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum Dinner

Join us for our 18th Annual Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum Dinner on Saturday, August 13, 2016 as we celebrate Our Museum, Our Legacy! This fabulous fundraiser seeks to raise funds in support of the Museum’s Hawaiian and Pacific collections. As the world’s premier museum dedicated to the culture, heritage and natural science of Hawai‘i and the Pacific – and the Pauahi Dinner is Bishop Museum at its very finest.

Enjoy Cocktails and Journeys as we unveil a new gallery exhibition exploring the heritage of the Northwest Hawaiian Islands. Shop our signature Silent Auction Pacifica for the latest in apparel, art, and unique experiences. Then, take a Deep Dive during our popular after-party in the blockbuster exhibit Planet Shark: Predator or Prey as we bring you closer to the museum’s treasures.

You will be treated to a delectable menu presented by Hawai‘i’s top chefs, free flowing wine, and astounding entertainment. For a truly top-notch experience, guests at our premier tables ($10,000 and above) can enjoy excellent dinner service, Champagne, fine wines, and surprises. Contributions are tax-deductible less the fair market value of goods and services received.
