Candy Leis

Handmade Leis – created by West High Band & Color Guard Families

On the Hawaiian islands, giving a lei at graduation is a long-standing tradition, a wish for good luck and to show the graduate how much they are loved and appreciated.  This custom has been adopted by many West High families.  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.


West High Entertainment Unit Parent Association (WHEUPA) parents and students have been making and selling handmade keepsake leis for 16 years.  All proceeds STAY with West High Band & Color Guard. Thank you for supporting our long-running fundraiser!


Our traditional West High candy leis have individually wrapped root beer and butterscotch hard candies in clear cellophane tied with curling ribbon.  Each lei contains approximately 32 candies, and is approximately 38" long before being tied into a loop.   These can be purchased as:

  • Butterscotch AND Root Beer
  • Root Beer only
  • Butterscotch only


**Other types of candy leis may be available for purchase at the WHEUPA sales table.


Single leis are $6 each, two or more are $5 each.


    Please pick up your lei from the WHEUPA sales table at one of the upcoming West High Senior Events or Band Events:
