Watch highlights from 2022

We had so much fun at our inaugural golf tournament in celebration of our 15th anniversary at the Hawaii Prince Golf Club in June. Thanks to our generous sponsors, donors and players, we were able to raise $15,000. And a special thank you to our amazing title sponsors, UPS and D Suehiro Construction. The tournament supports our volunteer & community service efforts throughout the year, starting with our annual School Supply Drive.
