POSHd celebrates first year with freebies, schools benefit



POSHd by Valerie Joseph is turning 1 and will celebrate its anniversary at Ward Village with a birthday bash benefiting Oahu’s public schools. The event takes place noon to 4 p.m. today at the boutique on the Diamond Head end of Ward Centre.

Customers will be able to sample treats from a candy bar, enjoy refreshments and receive a POSHd favor while shopping with scratch-and-win cards revealing 20- to 30-percent discounts or a chance to win a bottle of prosecco. Guests will also get a discount card toward their next purchase.

While there, spin a wheel marked with dollar amounts ranging from $1 to $10 that POSHd will donate to Community Helping Schools, a local nonprofit that provides classroom tools to public schools on Oahu. For more information on the organization, visit



To mark “Hawaii Says NO MORE Week,” the Joyful Heart Foundation and Bloomingdale’s are presenting an event featuring “Project Runway” alum Kini Zamora.

The Hawaii designer and advocate for the project will be at the store between 5 and 8 p.m. Thursday to style and sign a collection of Hawaii Says NO MORE T-shirts, with proceeds from sales benefiting the foundation started by actress Mariska Hargitay, pictured left, to call attention to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

The Hawaii campaign also aims to encourage conversation and break the social stigma surrounding these issues.
