We regret to inform you that we have made the decision to cancel this year’s Illumination Gala.  The Executive Committee of our Board of Trustees and our Head of School have thoroughly discussed the most current information and safety recommendations for COVID-19, and have made this decision with the belief that protecting the health and well-being of our Assets ‘Ohana and guests, as well as our community, is our highest obligation.

Mahalo To Our Sponsors

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and Assets School, we want to extend a heartfelt MAHALO to everyone who worked so hard to create an extraordinary Illumination Gala and everyone who purchased tables, tickets and donated wonderful auction items. Most importantly, we are so very grateful for your support of Assets School and we truly hope you understand this decision.
We plan to move auction items online for community bidding, and will share more information here about how you can participate.
Please contact Dr. Celina Barrios at or (808) 440-3621 with any questions.


In case you missed it, the 2019 Illumination Event:

Special attendees Tony Shalhoub and Brooke Adams brought the star power and laughs before Paul Singer spoke about his time as Head of School. With 350 attendees, almost 100 volunteers, and incredible silent and live auction items, the event helped celebrate our great minds who don’t think or learn alike. Mahalo to our sponsors, donors, volunteers, faculty, and staff for making the event possible.
