HONOLULU (KHON2) — Families headed to Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa, to attend the 8th annual Ko Olina Children’s Festival, raising $60,000 for Kapiʻolani Medical Center for Women and Children. The festival was inspired by Disney Pixar’s “A Bug’s Life” and was held right on the beach fronting Aulani. Keiki were invited to participate in bug-themed booths and activities, including a cockroach race hosted by the University of Hawaiʻi entomology team.

In addition, families watched the featured film on the beach at sunset and danced with Mickey and Stitch during the Aulani Ohana Hula Show. This year, the funds raised will go directly to Kapiʻolani’s new Martha B. Smith Cancer and Infusion Center. According to Hawaiʻi Pacific Health, the new center will be completed by late 2026 and will provide cancer care for some of the most complex diseases and conditions.

We are truly grateful to be able to support the visionary and lifesaving work of Kapiʻolani Medical Center for Women & Children. Today is the day we celebrate the courage of countless families under Kapiʻolani’s care, all in a fun and entertaining way. A huge mahalo to everyone who came out to enjoy the festivities, including our community partners and volunteers. They, too, share in our commitment to support Kapiʻolani’s incredible work.
