Home on the Range fundraiser
Yeeehaaawww! A BIG howdy to all the cowboys and cowgirls who giddied on up over to our first annual rodeo fundraiser, Home on the Range. Set in the middle of a pasture with boot -stomping live country music by the Queen of Country herself, Miss Dita Holifield and her HillBilly House band we were able to partake in a scrumptious BBQ buffet courtesy of our friends at Dixie Grill and wash it all down with refreshing lemonade from Nalomade lemonade and Budweiser beer, red and white wine from Paradise Beverages and Southern Wines. To finish up the meal, we were greeted with delicious root beer floats with Meadow Gold ice cream. Yummy! Our buddies at Events International supported our event with goods and staffing —couldn’t have done it without ya'll! After all that grubbing we lined danced and mosied on over to the rodeo for some more fun! Everyone was able to take home goodie bags with stuff from HMSA, Hawaii Energy, Diamond Bakery Co., Ltd. and Hawaiian Chip Company. None of this could have happened without our sponsors so a really big THANK YOU to the following - Hawaiian Electric, Bennet Group Communications, Honeywell, Enterprise Holdings, Kinetic Productions, Honda Windward, Zippys and DTRIC. And last but never least, a BIG Mahalo to Dita for allowing us to have this opportunity with her. What a great showdown! We had a blast and hope y’all did as well! Thanks for kicking up some dirt with us.
Make a Difference Day
Today we got up bright and early to participate in two volunteer projects—1 to help clean up Waikiki beach and 2–to pull invasive algae from Maunalua Bay as part of our Hawai’i Cares Make a Difference Day. This day encourages people from across the world to go out into the community, volunteer and make a difference. So we did! 15 of us spent the morning in Waikiki while over 35 of us had a great morning in Hawaii Kai learning about invasive algae species such as the gorilla ogo that are harmful to ocean life. Upon completion we pulled over 2,700 pounds of algae! A BIG mahalo to everyone who came out and supported these projects.
