Cancer benfit for Kona family
A cancer benefit will be held for the Opiopio family from 12-6 p.m. on Saturday, March 30, at the Big Island Honda parking lot in Kailua-Kona.
In January, Kaleo and Wendy Opiopio of Kona, parents to three young children, were both diagnosed with cancer — Kaleo with Stage 4 colon cancer, which has metastasized into the liver, and Wendy with breast cancer.
The March 30 fundraiser will feature entertainment, an auto show, silent auction, lucky number drawings, jump castles and more. Admission is a $5 donation.
Cash donations will go directly to the family and product donations will be used in the lucky number drawing or silent auction.
All proceeds will be used to pay medical expenses.
For updates and more information, visit Friends of Opiopio on Facebook, email email@example.com, or call Jeremy at 937-5051 or Willi at 756-1570.
Big Island Honda Kona is located at 75-5608 Kuakini Highway.
