On July 31st, 80 devoted football fans gathered to show their support of our Rainbow Warrior football team. Thanks to the contributions of seven individuals and companies who purchased seats at the event and a very generous matching donation from Lydia Tsui, Nā Koa was able to raise over $30,000 from this event. Further donations of the 11-course meal at Beijing Restaurant and beverages from Anheuser-Busch and Beverage Marketing and More allowed all the contributions to be available for the program’s use. Mahalo again to Lydia Tsui, Gordon Mau, and all the individuals and companies that supported this event!
Na Koa Ka’i level members and above: If you haven’t made your parking arrangements yet, parking is still available at Aiea Elementary School. Members who park there love the ease of getting in and out of the parking lot, right onto the freeway, with minimal traffic hassle! And it’s an easy walk over the bridge right into the stadium. Contact the Na Koa office for more information.
