The SAG Awards viewing party of the Hawaii Local was held at the Ko’olau Ballrooms on Jan. 29. Over 40 members and guests came together to take in the red-carpet program and the 2017 SAG Awards live, which took place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Fun, food, community building, door prizes and a scoring card game made for a memorable event. See you all next year!
