Mahalo to our supporters

Because of you, Keola along with Ali from Raising Cane’s were able to present a check for $17,250 to Partners in Development Foundation, a local non-profit organization that empowers families to navigate social challenges and to grow self-resiliency, vibrancy, and healthy, secure communities. Donations can still be collected here through the Christmas weekend.

Keola and 1027 Da Bomb are grateful to Raising Cane’s for matching $7,500 of your donations and for providing box combos to those who donated.  Together, we are proud to support Partners in Development Foundation who believe that nurturing family success will ignite their ability to serve others. Below are just a few of the programs that your donations will support and the list of all the generous donors.
