Honolulu, Hawaii– Goodwill Hawaii recently announced that Goodwill Goes GLAM! presented by Bank of Hawaii Foundation will take over the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall once again from August 17-19, 2023 to raise funds for the nonprofit’s job training and employment programs. The annual celebration of sustainable, secondhand fashion and shopping will kick-off on Thursday, August 17 with the GLAM! Gala and Fashion Show produced by Kim and Jade Alexis Ryusaki, the mother-daughter team behind the Japanese-Hawaiian fashion brand 
Lotus & Lime.

“Thrifting has always been one of our favorite mother-daughter past times, so we’re very excited to collaborate with Goodwill Hawaii to produce this fashion show, especially knowing that it’s supporting an excellent cause,” said Kim Ryusaki Marrero, matriarch, owner and co-designer of Lotus & Lime. “For this year’s show, we have chosen the theme ‘Celebrating Diversity’ which is inspired not only by our own multi-cultural background, but by all diverse people here in Hawaii. Through the evolution of fashion, style, and genres we will celebrate those influences and expressions throughout our show,” Ryusaki added.
“Every year we work with a different local designer to produce our annual GLAM! fashion show, and we are grateful that Kim and Jade have agreed to share their time and talent to support our organization,” said Katy Chen, Goodwill Hawaii president & CEO.

Kim and Jade founded Lotus & Lime in 2012 with the intent of perpetuating their Hawaiian and Japanese cultures through design. Lotus & Lime is known for its unique resort and island fashion, coveted hand painted wearable art, and one-of-a-kind fashion pieces and has become a local favorite here in the islands. Most recently, Lotus & Lime presented collections at New York Fashion Week in 2022 and the Mamo Wearable Art Show in Honolulu in February 2023.

The theme of ‘celebrating diversity’ will carry throughout the event and in a subsequent TV special airing twice in September, highlighting the work of Goodwill Hawaii, its employees, partners, clients, and supporters who together are strengthening Hawaii’s community through the power of work. Diversity, equity and inclusion is a core value of Goodwill’s mission, which aims to help low-income families, adults with disabilities, individuals who were previously incarcerated, at-risk youth and other marginalized populations to become more financially independent.

Event sponsorships and individual tickets to attend that opening night Gala and Fashion Show on Thursday, August 17 are available for purchase and feature a special three-course dinner menu prepared by Chef Russell Siu of 3660 On the Rise. All gala attendees will have also have first access to the GLAM! Sale, featuring the best that Goodwill Hawaii has to offer including designer fashions, shoes and handbags, vintage housewares, and one-of-a-kind collectibles all curated from donations received by the community. The GLAM! Sale will continue through the weekend, August 18-19, with free admission to the public and other special activities and promotions.

About Goodwill
Goodwill Industries of Hawaii, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation that helps people with employment barriers to reach their full potential and become self-sufficient.

Since 1959, we have provided job placement, career development, education, training, employment and support services for people throughout the state. Over 10,000 Hawaii residents each year have benefitted from Goodwill's services, and thousands have found employment in our community.

For more than 100 years, Goodwill Industries has championed a philosophy of community service through the power of work. In 1902, the founder of this philosophy, Reverend Edgar J. Helms, a Methodist Minister, took burlap bags into Boston's wealthier neighborhoods collecting donations. He invited community residents with disabilities and other disadvantages to help repair and sell the donations and used the revenue made through the sales to pay the workers. This philosophy is evident throughout Hawaii's Goodwill, and in Goodwills throughout the world.

Goodwill Industries International
Goodwill Industries of Hawaii (GIH) is an autonomous, dues-paying member of Goodwill Industries International, a growing network of Goodwill organizations throughout the world. There are currently 183 full member Goodwill organizations in the United States and Canada. Since the organization's founding in 1902, Goodwill has helped more than 9 million people. Globally, Goodwill Industries International announced its 21st Century Initiative to serve 20 million people by the year 2020.

Goodwill Leadership and Accreditation
Goodwill is led by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of civic and business leaders from the community. Goodwill has been fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for more than 30 years, and is certified by NISH. Goodwill maintains active membership in the National Rehabilitation Association, Hawaii Alliance of Nonprofit Organizations, Retail Merchants of Hawaii, Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii, Aloha United Way, Hawaii Employers Council, West Oahu Economic Development Association, and the Kapolei Chamber of Commerce.

  • Retail sales at our community stores
