Opening Ceremony & Keynote Address

Kevin Wanzer

7:30 – 9 AM
At his lemonade stand when he was just eight years old, Kevin Wanzer offered passersby two types of refreshment: a cold cup of lemonade and hilarious, dead-on stand-up renditions of Steve Martin comedy routines. Decades later, the lemonade and Martin routines are gone. The refreshment, however, is still to be had. As a humorist, motivational comedian and keynote speaker, Wanzer has been earning rave reviews for over thirty years. Inspiring and entertaining audiences in refreshing ways is all he has ever known. He has been noted nationally as one of the most effective and entertaining speakers for inspiring and empowering audiences, celebrating Ohana and the Spirit of Aloha. Through stories and humor, he helps people reconnect with hidden passions, embrace diversity, and celebrate community through laughter.

Early in his career, Wanzer served on the staff of and appeared on Late Night with David Letterman. As a result of his early work with First Lady Nancy Reagan, President Ronald Reagan appointed him to serve as a delegate to the White House Conference for a Drug Free America, on behalf of which he spoke at the United Nations. To this day, Wanzer is still one of the youngest presidential appointees in American history.

Please come honor the Pediatric Dentist of the Year during the awards portion of the morning. And celebrate the spirit of Hawaii with a unique opening.
