Macy's Shopping Spree & Pineapple Room Breakfast

Wednesday, July 27, 2011
It doesn't get much better than this..ProjectFocus gave each participant a $100 Macy's gift certificate so they could purchase clothing for their opening night exhibit reception on August 6th.  Armed and ready they hit the store before it opened to the public.  The Macy's team was great!  Breakfast by The Pineapple Room was delicious!  Did these kids "shine" or what?

Cirque Du Soleil Opens Their Hearts

Sunday, October 24, 2010
Our thanks to Isabel of Cirque du Soleil (lower front wearing PFH t-shirt) for arranging complimentary tickets for our kids to see “Alegria” at the Neal Blaisdell Arena. It was a fantastic experience for our participants, many of whom had never been to the arena, much less experienced a show of this caliber. Mahalo Isabel and Cirque du Soleil! If you havenʻt seen the show…itʻs a must!
