Community Recap - Teen Rayjah

Taylor Martin

On October 9, 2023, a remarkable gathering of hundreds of teens took place at the Hilo Civic Auditorium, marking the inaugural Teen Rayjah Event.

We were honored by the presence of distinguished guests, including Miss Hawaii Island USA - Leimakamae Freitas, Miss Hawaii Island Teen USA - Hemi Martinez, and Miss Orchid Isle Teen USA - Zoe Santana.

In addition to these remarkable guests, we were delighted to host a selection of delightful food and craft vendors, such as Lemonade Honey Hawaii, Cupcakes Boom!, Bubi Toy Bin, Hui Come Eat, Duck Fat Food Truck, It's Magic B, Bound Permanent Jewelry, Salti Gear Lemonade, MPT Sweet Tooth Cravings, and Unrel Jerky.

The highlight of the evening was an awe-inspiring performance by the immensely talented 808 Jam Club, hailing from Kamehameha Schools - Kea'au Campus.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our generous sponsors: Backyard Monkey, Creative Arts Hawaii, Keaukaha General Store, and VIP Mortgage.

Keep an eye on in 2024 for the latest updates on our upcoming events.
