The Pacific Guardian Center in Downtown Honolulu hosted a Halloween event Friday as part of its tenant appreciation initiative, a monthly investment that seeks to bolster company culture and tenant loyalty.

“It’s our way of showing tenants we appreciate them, and it is a good way for them to come out and meet their neighbors and take a break,” Bollozos-Fraticelli told Pacific Business News. “Also, we can interact with them in a way that is other than just business.”

This year’s event had about 750 cupcakes from The Girls Who Bake Next Door, karaoke, costume and pumpkin carving contests. It was open to all of the center’s 230 tenants, or 2,000 occupants.

“We bring different contractors and businesses in for each event, and work with steady local musicians,” Bollozos-Fraticelli said. “Our building staff provides the engineering, security and cleaning.”

Bollozos-Fraticelli did not provide PBN with budget specifics for the event, but she said it was an important investment for the owners of the center.
