WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Mazie K. Hirono and the Chamber of Commerce Hawaii celebrated the success of the Sixth Annual Taste of Hawaii on Capitol Hill, which drew over 60 Hawaii businesses and 2,000 attendees. Each participant received a fresh orchid lei and learned about an array of Hawaii businesses representing the diversity of Hawaii’s economy.
“The Taste of Hawaii on Capitol Hill is the most popular state showcase on Capitol Hill, and every year we are privileged to host so many people interested in experiencing the rich diversity of our state,” Senator Hirono said. “This event would not be possible without the dedication of our participating businesses, and the hard work of Sherry and her team at the Chamber – whose tireless efforts throughout the year make it a success. I look forward to continuing our partnership for many years to come.”
“In our sixth year, Hawaii on the Hill continues to set attendance records,” Sherry Menor-McNamara, Chamber of Commerce Hawaii President & CEO said. “Tonight's Taste of Hawaii on Capitol Hill demonstrated that Hawaii's business community will continue to make our voices heard on a national stage. Mahalo to our participating Chamber members who serve as the driving force behind what makes Hawaii on the Hill the most popular state showcase on Capitol Hill."
Hawaii on the Hill, a partnership between Senator Hirono and the Chamber of Commerce Hawaii, is a two-day event in our nation’s capital that gives Hawaii businesses the opportunity to meet directly with news and policy makers while also showcasing Hawaii businesses and products to Members of Congress and the Washington, D.C. community.
