Annual MAAD awards and vigil set for Saturday
MADD Hawai'i will host its annual Candlelight Vigil and Law Enforcement Recognition Awards beginning at 4 p.m. Saturday at the MADD Victim Memorial along the Kaka'ako Waterfront Park Promenade.
Organizers said the vigil offers victims and the community an opportunity to remember loved ones killed and to honor those who have rebuilt their lives after serious injury caused by impaired driving and other violent crimes. Candles of remembrance will be lit, and a floral offering will be placed at the memorial.
Dozens of law enforcement officers from across the state will also be honored for their efforts to combat drunk driving and underage drinking.
