Blind Vendors Ohana celebrates special occasions.
20th YEAR ANNIVERSARY
Blind Vendors Ohana, Inc. (BVO) celebrated its 20th year anniversary at the Honolulu Country Club on Saturday June 7, 2014 with the theme of the evening “20 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE”. The evening started with guest being welcomed by two of the owners Mr. Filo Tu and Mr. Thomas Morikami. There was also a beautiful 20 year picture collage filled with photo memories.
The evening was kicked off with the “Master of Ceremonies” a friend of the blind Mr. Reynaldo Graulty. He then introduced Mr. Warren Toyama who gave a wonderful heartfelt prayer. The music for the evening was performed by the group “Kapena Band”. We were even graced by the appearance and a speech from the Governor of the State of Hawaii Mr. Neil Abercrombie. The program progressed with the introduction of individuals who played a big part forming the Company over the last 20 years, in addition, current and past employees were recognized as well. There was even recognition for the following employees Garret Suzuki, Garret Ichioka, Glenn Watanabe, Liliy Delos Santos, Mark Toyama & Yolanda Canonizado all of whom have given 20 years of dedicated service to the Company. The evening concluded with a touching slideshow presentation as well as a tribute by select BVO employees singing their rendition of the song “After All These Years”.
