Mahalo to everyone who participated in the 21st annual Ed Wong Memorial Golf Tournament!
We had great support from the community including co-title sponsors, Anheuser-Busch Sales of Hawaii and Laborers Union Local 368, many food and beverage purveyors, businesses in Hawaii, and the many volunteers who provided good eats, great prizes, and cold drinks throughout the day.
Thanks to everyone’s generosity, we were able to raise approximately $40,000 to directly support our Rainbow Warrior football program.
We hope you can join us next year on April 12, 2016 for our annual tournament!

What is the difference between Nā Koa and AKA?
AKA (‘Ahahui Koa Ᾱnuenue) is the designated non-profit fundraising entity for UH Mānoa Athletics. Given this responsibility, AKA has created programs such as the H Club Athletic Fund* (previously known as AKA Premium Sports Package program), Coaches Choice, Kōkua AKA, as well as continues its oversight of all athletic booster clubs including the Nā Koa Football Club. Independently, Booster Clubs, such as Nā Koa, also raise funds for their specific program needs. This is accomplished, as previously mentioned, through booster club membership dues (with special benefits related to the sport), donations, and fundraisers.
* The newly launched AKA H Club Athletic Fund is a membership program designed to increase scholarship funds and provide value, recognition, and benefits to supporters of UH ticketed sports through a combination of their premium seat contributions and additional giving.
Visit our Membership page for information on the different membership levels and how to register.
