Come and roast Estrella on June 28
The Joey Estrella Retirement Roast, a benefit dinner for the Joe and Harriet Estrella Scholarship Endowment, will be held June 28 at the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel.
Tickets for the 6 p.m. event are $75 each and are available by calling the University of Hawaii at Hilo athletic department at 974-7520. Corporate tables of six or eight are also available.
The scholarship was initiated by UHH athletic director Dexter to recognize Estrella and will be given to student-athletes interested in playing Vulcans baseball.
Estrella guided the program from its inception in 1976 until retiring after this past season.
Estrella also has been a staunch supporter of Special Olympics and a backer of the UHH Blood Bank of Hawaii Drive.
