All are welcome. The Aloha spirit means coming together in unity and goodwill, with a spirit of generosity to others.
The Aloha spirit was the underlying theme of Barack Obama’s rise to the White House and it is the theme of our Aloha Inaugural Ball. When Barack said there are no conservative states or liberal states… just the United States of America….that message of Unity touched a powerful cord with the American public. It was a statement reflecting the principles of Aloha.
The Aloha Inaugural Ball will be a welcoming place for Americans with different backgrounds from ar ound the country, to come together in Unity and to have a wonderful time. It is being organized by Obama campaign volunteers, some who are originally from Hawaii.
