Over $20,000 Raised at 4th Annual Best Buddies Friendship Walk in Oahu
Over 150 people gathered from across the island of Oahu to join in our 4th Annual Best Buddies Friendship Walk at Magic Island on Saturday, March 12, 2016. We exceeded our goal and raised over $20,000.00 with an increase of 37% from last year. Everyone was able to enjoy the wonderful entertainment, raffle prizes, food and drinks.
It was a successful campaign spearheaded by our Best Buddies staff, board and extended family. We educated the community on the Best Buddies mission and were able to spread awareness.
Best Buddies Global Ambassador Kelly Hu stepped away from her busy schedule and hosted the event while managing to raise over $5,000 for her team, Hu’s Your Buddy. It took dedication from each person to have this walk inspire the community to come out and join this wonderful cause. Thanks to our sponsors Ironstate Development, Maximum Senior Benefits, UH(Center for Disabilities Studies), Sol Simple, Matsumoto Law Group, C&J Solar and Huakai Management and many In kind donations who helped make the event possible.
Everyone enjoyed the captivating scenery and the beautiful sun at one of islands most sought after beaches. It was truly a day to remember.
