It's time for Graduation Leis!

UPDATED 03/28/2019 -- Graduation Leis NOW available for PRE-ORDER SALES!!  ORDER BY May 30th!

On the Hawaiian islands, giving a lei at graduation is a long-standing tradition. This lovely custom has now spread past the islands and into many other parts of the world. 

Leis are commonly presented when someone is arriving and leaving, so it’s no surprise that leis are given to graduates as they are leaving school and arriving to this new stage of life. 

By giving a lei to a graduate, you become a part of this festive tradition that is fun for both the giver and the recipient. Giving a graduation lei is a loving way to show a graduate how much you support, admire and care for them.  

The Tesoro Music Boosters is again selling beautiful graduation leis to honor your graduating 2019 Senior!

All Lei sale proceeds go directly to the Tesoro Music Program. Thank you!!
