The Hawai‘i Chamber of Commerce of Northern California (HCCNC) proudly presents our 12th Annual Five Star Aloha Gala on Thursday, May 22, 2014 at the historic Westin St. Francis in San Francisco. This is our organization’s signature event, and serves as a venue for honoring individuals and organizations with our Kūlia I Ka Nu‘u Award for their contributions in promoting the Aloha Spirit throughout Northern California and beyond.


This year we honor Jan Yanehiro and the recipients of the Kūlia I Ka Nu‘u Scholarship Program.  Jan Yanehiro is a long-time HCCNC supporter, entrepreneur, author and Emmy awarding-winning broadcast journalist. A graduate of Farrington High School in Honolulu, Yanehiro has left an indelible mark in television broadcasting as the founding co-host of KPIX TV’s “Evening Magazine” from 1976 to 1990, a program that pioneered the magazine format on television. We recognize Jan Yanehiro for blazing a trail for API youth, especially young women, and for also demonstrating that there are truly no limits to what you can accomplish. Yet, despite her numerous awards and accomplishments, Yanehiro is quick to note that her proudest achievements are her three children, Jaclyn, Jenna and JB Zimmerman. The HCCNC proudly salutes Jan Yanehiro for her perpetual Aloha Spirit, and for never forgetting her humble Kalihi roots.


Proceeds from the event will benefit the Kūlia I Ka Nu‘u Scholarship Program. Each year, the HCCNC Foundation grants scholarships to deserving students from Hawai‘i pursuing their college education in Northern California. It is our way to help develop the 50th State’s future leaders and to further strengthen the bridges between Hawai‘i and Northern California.
