Hawaii Tribune-Herald Sunday, July 30, 2017 9 ACTIVITY SPECIAL REPORT BUSINESS A “pau hana” event AFTER HOURS Chamber Business After Hours events offer chamber member businesses an opportunity to showcase their business and services, usually at their facility. Typically hosted by the business or by the chamber’s Social Committee, these events are usually held “pau hana,” from about 5-7 p.m. They also offer attending members an opportunity to socialize, network and meet other business professionals. The Social Committee helps with planning and the chamber office promotes the event. Recent Business After Hours events have included an opportunity to enjoy the impressive selection of affordable, island-inspired art at One Gallery in Downtown Hilo; enjoy ono pupu prepared from products obtained from the stocked shelves in the Food Basket’s (Hawaii Island’s food bank) warehouse; savor the fresh, local ingredients in the pupu offerings prepared by WikiFRESH; and a lucky member even won a brand new Scion TC (a scaled-down, remote control model, of course) during a Big Island Toyota After Hours event.
