A group of Hawaiians, representing the Cynthia Rose Foundation (Website) visited Orlando today to deliver a hand-made, mile-long lei, to the memorial at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

The massive lei, broken into three separate segments, was delivered presented to Orlando at a 2 p.m. ceremony in front of the Center. The lei has 49 shells woven into it, representing the 49 victims of the shooting at Pulse nightclub.

A transplanted Orlando resident, Tom Zaizar, who now lives in Maui, was in the ceremonial party that gifted the lei, and endless aloha from the island state, today.
