Today from 4 to 6 p.m. at the University of the Nations preschool, the public is invited to bring their keiki to a free Easter egg hunt and at the same time “help send the aloha spirit to children in Thailand” who need cleft-lip or cleft-palette surgery.
The happy, hoppy benefit is being sponsored by the ministries Chosen & Dearly Loved and More than Sport, along with local businesses. Funds raised via raffle tickets and an auction will go toward surgeries to give the keiki “an opportunity to smile.”
