Class of 2000 Marks 10th Year

The Class of 2000 celebrated its 10th year reunion on December 26, 2010 at the Waialae Country Club with 71 classmates, 22 guests, and class advisor and counselors Patty Wagner and Judy Hiramoto. Class president Bradford Lee ’00 welcomed everyone to the milestone event followed by a blessing by CliftonYasutomi ’00. The evening was a success as classmates mingled over cocktails and delicious pupus catered by Waialae. 

Members of the Class of 2000 Trina Hirasaki, Jessica Luben, Kristi Kimura, Bryan Hsu and Kevin Kam enjoy casino night at their reunion.
An inspirational message, from classmate Summer Kozai ’00 who was unable to attend, was read by Judy Hiramoto. Other highlights of the evening included brief open mic updates from everyone; a photo slideshow; and Las Vegas-style casino action with craps, black jack, and roulette tables. Soon high-fives, shouting, and chest-bumping contributed to a rowdy good time.

Jason Ikehara ’00, Kari Hayashi ’00 and Ryan Ishizu ’00 play at the craps tables.
David Miyasato ’00 ruled the tables as the big winner of the night, prevailing on consecutive rounds of “all-in” at roulette, and walked away with 60 times his “buy-in” of play money and numerous raffle prizes. The evening winded down with a chill and classy after party at The Edition Lounge in the former Ilikai hotel. 

Many thanks to Ricky Oshiro with Just Like Vegas, who provided the gaming tables and dealers for the evening; Waialae Country Club; Mike Moses ’93 and Alumni Relations for ‘Iolani gear doorprizes; and the 10-Year Reunion planning committee: Linda Kuo ’00, Bradford Lee ’00, Kristen Leong ’00, Nicole Lim ’00, Sara Nakasone ’00, Emi Tanitomi ’00, and Clifton Yasutomi ’00.
