Waiakea girls golf team needs your help
Donations to assist the Waiakea High School girls golf team in recovering from last week’s golf club theft is being collected through the Hawaii High School Athletic Association at all First Hawaiian Bank locations throughout the state.
Ten golf bags were stolen from the rental van of the Waiakea High School girls golf team during a team dinner at Chili’s restaurant in Waikele, Thursday, March 23.
The team traveled to O’ahu to prepare for the HHSAA girls golf state championships, which will be held May 9-10 at Turtle Bay Resort. Eight of the 10 team members had their belongings stolen, which included thousands of dollars worth of golf clubs.
Unfortunately, not all families are able to deal with the financial loss and it is still uncertain if all the team members will be able to obtain clubs for the remainder of the season.
“The Waiakea girls golf team has already received tremendous community support, such as David and Lorraine Ishii arranging for the girls to receive discounted golf clubs and other equipment, the Pacific Beach Hotel providing complimentary rooms for the team during their stay on O’ahu, and cash donations from concerned citizens across the state,” said HHSAA Executive Director Keith Amemiya.
“Of course, given the high cost to replace their equipment and the travel costs to participate in this May’s state tournament on O’ahu, any additional community support would be greatly appreciated.”
Donations to assist the team should be made to HHSAA: Waiakea Golf Fund at any First Hawaiian Bank location.
