Autism Society of Hawaii Postpones “HELE for Autism and Resource Fair 2020”

Amid COVID-19 Concerns

HONOLULU – The Autism Society of Hawaii announced today the postponement of the nonprofit organization’s annual “HELE for Autism and Resource Fair 2020” scheduled for April 11 at Ala Moana Beach Park’s Magic Island.

The Autism Society of Hawaii’s President Dennis Maher said, “We are greatly disappointed that we must postpone our walk. However, with the current escalation of COVID-19 cases in Hawaii and the Hawaii Department of Health’s recommendation to cancel any public event with more than 100 attendees, we feel that it is in the best interests of our families, sponsors, exhibitors, entertainers and volunteers that we postpone this event.”

We have been monitoring this situation in our community very closely, and have been in very close contact with the City and County Parks Department.  With them, we have been able to coordinate a later date of May 30, 2020, for our event at Ala Moana Beach Park’s Magic Island.

We want to thank all of our walkers, families and friends, sponsors, and exhibitors for their commitment to a successful event and look forward to seeing all of you on May 30th.

Our sponsors for this year’s event include Honolulu Star Advertiser, Beachside Roofing, Hawaiiana Management, In Control, Island Flooring, Zelinsky Painting, Orbit Sales, Innovated Installers, Aloha Behavioral Practices, Anuenue Behavioral Analysts and Autism Behavioral Consulting Group.
