For an early pledge of $365 to Celebration 2012, not only can you help wrap the fall pledge drive in 8 days instead of 10, but you and a friend can also join Hawaii Public Radio Members for a Sunset Tour of the Liljestrand House, a mid 20th century modern masterpiece by Vladimir Ossipoff. Perched at the crest of Tantalus and boasting spectacular views of Honolulu, The Liljestrand House provides the perfect setting to enjoy a beautiful Hawaiian sunset while enjoying refreshments, good company, and an exclusive tour of this architectural gem.
