Zonta Club of Hanalei: Women working for women

One of the marks of a truly healthy person is generosity and caring for others. The Zonta Club of Hanalei is hosting its 4th Annual Luxury Ladies Spa Day on May 19 in order to raise funds for women.

The funds may go to help educate or to purchase needed items so that women can re-enter the workplace or simply live with dignity. The Zonta Club is an international organization of women helping women, and this event will not only help raise funds to support those in need, it will boost the spirit of all who attend.

The Zonta Club of Hanalei was chartered on April 1, 2007. Robin Savage, a long-term, dedicated businesswoman in Hanalei, rallied fellow professional business women along Kaua‘i’s North Shore to gather together in support of Zonta International.

With the ongoing goal of advancing the status of women worldwide, the Zonta Club of Hanalei became the second Zonta Club on the island of Kaua‘i. The members meet on the third Tuesday of each month to discuss their efforts in planning raising funds to assist women young and old with scholarships and more.

Zonta International is a global organization of nearly 33,000 members working together worldwide. In addition to the Zonta Club of Hanalei, there are more than 1,200 Zonta Clubs in 67 countries. Known as “Zontians,” members have committed hundreds of thousands of service hours and millions of dollars to a wide range of women-focused community service projects.

The mission of the Zonta Club of Hanalei Foundation is to support charitable and educational programs on Kaua‘i as well as that of Zonta International. The Foundation achieves this through effective fundraising, investment of funds and the distribution of proceeds. Through its financial support of Zonta International programs, the Foundation becomes the catalyst for greater service to women throughout the world.
