KCFCU raises $20,000 for charity

LIHU‘E — A total of 153 golfers participated in Kaua‘i Community Federal Credit Union’s 12th annual Charity Golf Tournament which was held at the Puakea Golf Course on Saturday.

The event raised $20,000 that was donated to the Wilcox Health Foundation for Pediatric Services via the Kapiolani Children’s Miracle Network.

Irving Soto, VP of Marketing & CUSO, stated that the Children’s Miracle Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children’s hospitals across North America.

 “One hundred percent of the money raised today stays on Kaua‘i for our children,” Soto said. “Without your support and generosity, this would have never happened.”

Melvin Chiba, President/CEO of KCFCU said “The golfers, sponsors, donors and volunteers again made this event a huge success. The funds not only help in providing medical care and research but it also educates our keiki in taking care of their health.”

Alan King, Board Chairman of the Wilcox Health Foundation, accepted a check for $20,000 by Mr. Chiba.

“I just want to thank KCFCU for all their hard work and efforts in putting this event together,” King said. “We are very grateful in receiving this donation.”

Each year these non-profit hospitals of the Children’s Miracle Network provide the finest care, life-saving research and community outreach to help millions of children overcome diseases and injuries of every kind.
