The way to say Happy Birthday in Hawaiian is 'Hau'oli La Hanau'. The literal translation means happy glad day…AND HAPPY WISH DAY to Jasmine who has been bravely battling a brain tumor since a young age.

Jasmine’s love of dolphins, the ocean and Hawaiian culture intersected when she made her wish to have a luau birthday bash. She had her own private cabana at the annual Alfred’s Beach House Tiki Festival compete with everything from hula dancing and ukulele playing to face painting and tropical ice cream eating!

Jasmine, 10, had a wonderful time at her birthday party with her close friends and relatives at Alfred’s Beach Club in Long Beach. Everyone at Blue Bunny made sure that Jasmine’s illness was the last thing on her mind. As soon as Jasmine arrived at the beach, she was welcomed by her wish granters with beautiful leis.

After Jasmine saw the beautiful Hawaiian dancers on stage dancing, she requested to be on stage and perform, dancing on stage in front of thousands and thousands of people. After the crowd sang Happy Birthday to Jasmine, a group of Hawaiian dancers came over to her party to perform for Jasmine and sang Happy Birthday to her in Hawaiian!!
