HONOLULU (KHON2) – For the second consecutive year, the 2022 Punahou Carnival will be closed to the public due to COVID-19. The campus carnival will take place on Friday, February 4 and is only open to current students, faculty, staff and their families.
However, the public can still participate virtually via the online art gallery and the silent auction.

All proceeds from the silent auction will benefit students receiving financial aid.
“Carnival is very important for [financial aid] because we have over 950 students currently receiving financial aid. And last year, I believe…Carnival received over $300,000 for this financial assistance. So putting on carnival this year and in the years to come I think is really important to support that financial aid,” Pruder explained.
People can bid on items until Saturday, February 5 at 9 p.m., when the auction closes.
The online art gallery also features over 3,000 works of art, with the money being split equally between the artist and financial aid.
