This year five special events are planned that start on Sunday evening as we expand our horizons and explore new cultures with our "OHANA NIGHT" with delicious food and exciting Polynesian entertainment. We will continue exploring the possibilities with our Keynote Mae Jemison, the first African American female astronaut in space. Our exploration will head to the National Air and Space Museum on Tuesday night to see many of the nation's treasures as we enjoy a Night at the Smithsonian. After the museum, we will return to the Hilton to remember our past and revitalize our souls with some old time Rock and Roll!

Join us and bring the family!
