Double Braided Leis

Double Braided 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 $20 Double Braided leis are handmade with 2 colors of satin ribbon, and are approximately 42” long before being made into a loop.  The first color listed is the outside ribbon color, the second color listed is the inside ribbon color.  One color ribbon has a metal edge.  If you want to specify which color has the metal edge, please purchase from our sales table.

 

Additional color variations may be available at the Sales Table.

 

Per school policy, no leis may be worn during the Graduation ceremony.  West High School colors are Brown & Gold.  WHS graduation gown is brown.  West High Class of 2024 Class Color is RED.
