SCHOFIELD BARRACKS —  The Hui ‘O Na Wahine all-ranks army spouses club is looking forward to some healthy competition during its annual silent auction fundraiser at the Nehelani, Thursday, Nov. 15.

All members and vendors are asked come and shop items from talented members. Items will range from homemade crafts and cakes to plants and knickknacks.

The Hui is seeking donated items for the auction. Donations don’t have to be handmade; they can be new items.

“We are looking forward to the beautiful items our members so graciously donate,” said Margaret Trimble, 2nd vice president. “The items bring some friendly competition to the luncheon and help us raise funds for our scholarship and welfare grants.”

All the proceeds from the luncheon go to welfare and scholarship grants.

The event opens at 10:30 a.m., for shopping, with a buffet lunch from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. The event costs $20 and covers a delicious lunch provided by the Nehelani.

Participants will have time to shop with vendors and socialize with other spouses. Some of the community vendors include Tastefully Simple, Thirty One Gifts, Creative Memories, Stampin’ Up, Premiere Designs, Silpada, Avon, Stella and Dot, Tupperware, Scentsy, Once in a Blue Moon Designs and Choffy.

For November, the donation basket is for the Armed Services YMCA Food Pantry. Members are asked to bring in boxed and canned nonperishable foods, personal hygiene products and cleaning supplies, and in return, they will receive free opportunity tickets.

Applications are available online, and annual fees ($25) will be accepted by mail and at the event.

Hui luncheons are held monthly and range in themes.

Silent Auction Donations

Donations will be accepted through today. Fresh items will be accepted the morning of the luncheon.

Drop off points for donations are at Schofield and Wheeler; information is available at or go to
