Chocolates, cakes, and cookies oh my. That’s just a few of the homemade goodies that were sold at the Hui Ho‘omalu Bake Sale on June 24 at the Dole Cannery. There was also a silent auction and rummage sale that was comprised of all donated items such as big screen T.V.s, Jake Shimabukuro signed ukulele, homemade jewelry, Paul Brown gift packs, and much more.
Along with monetary donations, the total amount fundraised: $5,000! 100% of the proceeds will be going towards events for Resource Families and foster youth state wide.
Mahalo goes out to ALL the agencies that pulled together to make this such a successful event. Our thanks goes out to Department of Human Services, EPIC ‘Ohana Inc., Catholic Charities Hawai‘i, Foster Care Training Committee, and Hawai‘i Adaptive Permanency Alliance for their donations, support, and volunteer help.
We want to give a special mahalo to Hawai‘i Information Services (HIS) for partnering with us. They did mini pre-bake sale fundraisers, solicited and obtained donations, provided baked goods to sell, ran the silent auction and rummage sale, and provided 100% of their staff to participate and volunteer for the event.
