On Sunday, November 15, the Ku‘ikahi Mediation Center—in participation with the Hawai‘i County Bar Association (HCBA)—is hosting our Tenth Annual Recognition Dinner in Hilo to help fund our non-profit human services agency. 
"This year Ku‘ikahi is giving our ‘Peacemaker Award’ to Mark E. Recktenwald, the Chief Justice of the Hawai‘i State Supreme Court.  The CJ is nationally recognized for his leadership and commitment to increasing equal access to justice,” said Judge Andrew Wilson, Ku‘ikahi’s board president.  “On Hawai‘i Island, that includes the Hilo Self-Help Center and our Foreclosure Mediation Program.”
In addition, attorney Addison M. Bowman is being honored by the HCBA for his many years of service.  Mr. Bowman is a Professor of Law Emeritus at UH-Manoa’s William S. Richardson School of Law and an appellate mediator for the Hawai‘i Supreme Court.
Newton John Chu, Esq. will emcee the gala event, which features a silent auction, live auction, and door prizes.  Items up for bid include rounds of golf, adventure tours, entrance to local attractions, overnight stays, gift cards to restaurants and retail stores, artwork, gift baskets, flower arrangements, and more.
No-host cocktails will be served at 5:00 p.m., with dinner served at 6:00 p.m.  The buffet will feature three entrees—prime rib, Furikake salmon, and shrimp scampi over fettuccini—as well as salad, side dishes, and dessert.
This fundraiser provides a significant portion of the funds that Ku‘ikahi needs to provide free and low-cost dispute resolution services to the East Hawai‘i community.  Over half of Ku‘ikahi’s clients are at or below the poverty level, meaning they are unable to pay even modest fees for their mediation sessions.
Tickets for the Annual Dinner are $85 per person (of which $40 is tax deductible) and are available from Ku‘ikahi's board of directors and from Ku‘ikahi's office in The Hilo Lagoon Centre at 101 Aupuni Street, Suite PH 1014 B-2.  For reservations, contact Ku‘ikahi Executive Director Julie Mitchell at 935-7844 x 5 or email
