Learning Lessons from other Events

A long time ago, we remember having pins to support the Aloha Festivals The pins were bought in advance as well as at the activities and entitled one to admission to events.

a few Aloha Festivals pins

More recently, we noticed pins sold in public garden gift shops as a collectible item. In another case, pins were given as a membership memento.

Hilo Orchid Society pin

A year ago, Friends of Lili`uokalani Gardens began efforts to have a pin made based on our logo. That pin went on sale in the fall at the Queen’s birthday festival, He Hali`a Aloha No Lili`uokalani.

Produced by Hawaii Printing Center, this $5 pin serves as one admission to pupu at six locations throughout the Banyan Drive Art Stroll on Saturday, January 11, 2020 from noon to 6:00 p.m.

Pins are available for sale in advance of the Banyan Drive Art Stroll at Banyan Gallery. During Saturday’s event, pins will be available at the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel lobby lounge where the silent auction will be set up, at the photo exhibit in Hilo Bay Cafe, and in the Palm Room of the Grand Naniloa Resort.

Please help support Friends of Lili`uokalani Gardens.
