This day on the 1st of May will be dedicated to all cultures and communities across Australia to unite as one, share with each others cultural Lei (flower necklace) and to embrace the true meaning behind the Lei which symbolises ALOHA or Love towards one another without end.

The inaugural Lei Day Charity Ball will welcome Miss Hawai'i USA 2017 Julie Kuo who is also the Ambassador for the event in 2018 . The Charity Ball be held in the Grand Ballroom with an amazing 3 course meal including wine and premium beverages.

About Lei Day:

The first Lei Day was in 1927 (the Academy Awards began in 1929) and celebrated in downtown Honolulu with a few people wearing lei. From that it grew and more and more people began to wear lei on May 1. We are told that the first celebration and exhibit of lei was at the Bank of Hawai‘i. In 1928, the first lei queen was Nina Bowman. Mayor Charles Arnold crowned Lei Queen Nina Bowman here in Honolulu.

The annual Lei Day Celebration provides a venue, where one day of the year is set aside to celebrate the lei and the skill and artistry of Hawai‘i’s lei makers.

This Charity event will now honour Hawai‘i’s people and the rich cultures across Australia.
