Orchid Isle Ford in conjunction with Ziebart and KTA SuperStores headlined our Signature Sponsor Tables. A grand time was had by all and the FRIENDS were proud of such generous community support. Couldn’t do it without our friends!
And then later in the year, Home Street Bank joined the Friends as a Signature Sponsor for our first annual “Mai Tai Masquerade”!

So many people support the FRIENDS with contributions large and small. We couldn’t do it without you! We’d like to take this time to thank Joe Hanley at Orchid Isle Ford who was a signature sponsor at our second annual Gala Dinner. Joe is not only a supporter, he was our non-profit’s first Board President and shepherded us from a group of well meaning business people into our fully recognized 501(c)(3) status. Thank you, Joe and Orchid Isle Ford!

Don’t miss our 3rd annual Dinner coming up on Friday, May 4 at 5:30pm at the MOKU’OLA Room in the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel!
The FRIENDS couldn’t do all they do without the help of many people and organizations in our East Hawaii community. The FRIENDS are again honoring two people and one organization during this year’s 3rd Annual Gala on Friday, May 4, 2018, (5:30pm is No Host Cocktails and Silent Auction, 6:30pm for Dinner and program) at the Moku’ola Room in the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel. $30 per ticket is tax deductible.
Young ladies want to attend PROM, WINTER BALL, and BANQUETS, but sometimes financial hardship can stand in the way of getting the really perfect dress. Beginning in November of 2017, the FRIENDS launched the third annual PROM DRESS DRIVE to collect gently used dresses and accessories to provide fashionable clothing for deserving youth.
