*USO Hawaii will postpone the Tribute to the Troops Event at the Polynesian Cultural Center on March 14, 2020 as a precaution. *

USO Hawaii will postpone the 3rd annual “Tribute to the Troops” at the Polynesian Cultural Center on 14 March 2020 until further notice in order to ensure the safety of the public and avoid unnecessary risks of exposure due to the spread of coronavirus. USO Hawaii will continue to provide programs and resources to service members and their families at military installations while ensuring health and safety for all.

USO Hawaii will work to reschedule the event in the future at a date to be determined.

From the staff at the Polynesian Cultural Center, “We look forward to holding this event at a later date and honoring our military personnel and the sacrifices they make for us all.”

The Polynesian Cultural Center is committed to supporting our service members and as of Thursday, March 12, 2020, the Center plans to be open on Saturday, March 14. PCC will honor any Ali’i Luau reservations already made and will allow free Islands admission to military personnel and their families who show a valid ID at the box office.

“We remain committed to responsibly supporting our service members and their families across the U.S. and overseas. Our leadership teams will monitor health advisories and evaluate operational conditions on a frequent basis as long as necessary to ensure continuity of mission delivery and the safety of our staff and volunteers,” said Chief Operating Officer Alan Reyes.
