Torch Awards

Each year, the BBB Torch Awards program helps illuminate the importance of a marketplace where buyers and sellers, and donors and charities can trust each other. BBB’s Torch Awards promote trust in the marketplace and honor local businesses and public charities for their outstanding commitment to fair, honest, and ethical marketplace practices.

Hawaii’s BBB Torch Awards

BBB Torch Awards are open to all Hawaii businesses and 501(c)(3) public charities. BBB accreditation is not required, however those nominated must be in good standing with Hawaii’s BBB. 

This year's event will be held at the Sheraton Waikiki on Wednesday, April 30th. 

This Year

We are thrilled to announce our Torch Awards keynote speaker,Commodore of the Golden Gate Yacht Club, Norbert Bajurin.  His incredible story was captured in the book, The Billionaire and the Mechanic  (he’s the mechanic) and we are fortunate to have him speaking at our event.

 Norbert Holding America's Cup

Norbert will share his journey of how an everyday guy formed an unlikely partnership with Larry Ellison to win the America’s Cup.  This is a great opportunity for you, your employees and your clients to be inspired by a real life example of not giving up on one’s dreams and persevering through the ups and downs of business and life. 

Julian Guthrie, author of The Billionare and the Mechanic will also be on hand signing copies of her best selling novel.
