ABOUT THE 2021 BRIDGE AWARDS EVENT—While we are excited to hold our Bridge Awards Event in-person this year, we ask for your understanding as we have transformed its format to address health concerns. The limited capacity means that general ticket sales were not available, and many of our JASH ʻOhana are unable to join us in-person this year. If you do wish to support JASH through the Bridge Awards Event, we invite you to join our online Silent Auction. We sincerely appreciate your support and understanding as we continue to navigate these unique challenges during these unprecedented times.

Taste of JASH: Mānoa Honey & Mead Virtual Pau Hana Thursday, January 13, 2022 5:30-6:30PM (HST) Registration Coming Soon
Kicking off 2022, we’re excited for our next Taste of JASH: Nomu Edition program with Mānoa Honey & Mead on Thursday, January 13 at 5:30PM! Oʻahu's one and only Hawaiian craft mead mixes Hawaiian honey and tropical fruits, creating a drink tailored for the local climate. Since taking over Mānoa Honey in 2014, owners Yuki and Erika Uzuhashi and their team in Wahiawā also produce raw honey and specialty hive products. Click HERE to learn more about Mānoa Honey & Mead and order some fantastic gifts and drinks for the holidays from their online store. We hope you enjoyed the first two virtual pau hanas in our Nomu Edition series! We learned so much from Kō Hana Distillers and Hawaiian Shochu Company about how they incorporate as much of Hawaii as possible into their spirits. If you were unable to join us live, you can watch the recordings on our JASH YouTube Channel. Click HERE for our program with Kō Hana, and HERE for our program with Hawaiian Shochu Company.
