The Hui O Wahine is a Military Spouses Club, located on
Ft. Shafter on the Island of Oahu.
The Hui O Wahine will be hosting their
Annual MAKE IT, BAKE IT, FAKE IT Basket Auction

Doors open @ 10.30
The Hale Ikena on Ft. Shafter
Proceeds from Baskets from Outside Donors (Non Club Members) 
go towards Scholarships and Welfare.
Here is a little about the Club as posted on their website:

"Since the 1930s, the Hui O’ Wahine has extended pilialoha (friendship) through its membership of spouses, Soldiers, and civilian employees. We are an all-ranks club...nobody is too new, too young, or outranked here!  Now we open our club to men and women of all branches of the military.

As a community-centered club, we work together to raise funds that benefit our Soldiers and families through college scholarships and through grants to organizations that serve our local area.

As a people-centered club, we work together to increase the Spirit of Aloha and a sense of sisterhood amongst our membership and throughout our neighborhoods....."

Elizabeth, the First VP wrote this in the Hui Spirit Newsletter  for November:
"The Basket Auction is your chance to participate and help raise those funds whether by donating items to be auctioned and/or enjoying the festivities on auction day.  Get creative and donate a decorated table top tree or wreath for the auction.  Bake a cake, a loaf of bread or a dozen cookies for the auction. Combine all the necessities for mailing ‘care packages’ down range into a basket for the auction.  Arrange gardening gadgets and flower seeds in a terra cotta pot. Wrap up a mug, coffee beans and a Starbucks card. The ideas are limitless for items you can donate to the fundraiser.
Therefore, the items to bid upon will run the gamut as well.
Great cause, good deals, fun times!...." To read more of this article check out

The Members of this Organization work extremely hard every year to give back to the Military and the surrounding Local Community.
