Editor’s note, November 19—The UH Alumni Relations Office has made the difficult decision to cancel the December 6 UH Alumni Mingle & Jingle event at the Sheraton Waikīkī. This decision was made in light of the continuation of the Marriott workers strike and picketing. We are disappointed, but for the experience of our participants and vendors, we believe this is the right decision.

Though the event is cancelled, we would still like to support our alumni vendors as best we can. Visit the UH Alumni website to see the list of our vendors, and consider supporting their locally-owned business this holiday season.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the cancellation or any other matters, please email contact@uhalumni.org or call Laura Wood, Associate Director of Alumni Relations Special Events at (808) 956-2389.

We did not take this decision lightly. We hope you understand our concerns and will join us in our future endeavors to support the alumni of the University of Hawaiʻi.
