August 20, 2022 at Ala Moana Beach Park Magic Island

Though 2021 marked the first time that O‘ahu’s Visitor Industry Charity Walk was hosted in a virtual format, there was nothing that got between us and our goal of providing support to more than a hundred charities, nonprofits, and other various organizations that count on this event to help them achieve their missions. In 2019, we raised more than $500,00 that was eventually distributed across the island to organizations dealing with homelessness, youth, social welfare, mental and physical health, and our environment amongst a myriad of other issues. This year’s walk returns to an in-person event and promises to be filled with festive fun, good food, and great entertainment.

"What’s most meaningful about the Charity Walk is that it’s the visitor industry’s way of showing its profound appreciation for the community by way of its fiscal contribution. We continue to fundraise and, thanks to the unparalleled support of our hospitality industry, and the generosity of many HLTA members, are able to provide assistance to hundreds of local nonprofits across our islands."
- Mufi Hannemann, HLTA President and CEO
