An annual charity golf tournament, hosted by Maui Credit Unions, raised $45,000 for the local nonprofit Hale Mahaolu.
Hale Mahaolu is known for providing housing, meals, and personal care for Maui kūpuna and people with disabilities, as well as affordable housing for individuals and families.
“We so appreciate Maui Credit Unions for choosing Hale Mahalolu as the beneficiary of their 7e annual golf tournament,” said Grant Chun, executive director of Hale Mahalolu.
He said proceeds from the Sept. 17 event will be used to support planning initiatives to bring more affordable housing to the community in years to come.
This year’s tournament co-chairs, Guy Muraoka, CEO/President of Kahului Federal Credit Union, and Kelly Tobita, CEO/President of Maui Teachers Federal Credit Union, said, “After a two-year hiatus, we are pleased to have been able to bring back the Maui Charity Golf Tournament Credit Unions and are thrilled to have set a new record for most funds raised by this event. We are grateful to the people and generous sponsors who helped make this tournament a huge success.
Since 2014, Kahului FCU, Maui FCU, Maui County FCU, Maui Teachers FCU, Valley Isle FCU and Wailuku FCU have partnered to host this annual golf tournament to support local organizations.
To date, over $222,000 has been raised to improve the health and well-being of individuals in Hawaiʻi.
