Parker School raises record $215,000 for financial aid
Parker School hosted its ninth annual Kahiau dinner/auction gala for financial aid March 8 at the Fairmont Orchid.
More than 230 people attended and helped the school raise more than $215,000, a record so far for this event.
More than 50 percent of the 270 kindergarten through 12th-grade students at Parker receive financial assistance, and Kahiau, the school’s largest fundraiser of the year, is key in making this possible.
The Hawaiian word kahiau means “to give generously from the heart,” and every year the school puts on the gala so people can come together in a fun way while helping provide community children with a college-preparatory education at Parker.
Parker School wants to thank the many sponsors, donors, volunteers and attendees who helped make the event a success.
