A HAWAII 501C3 NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION
The Kona Brewers' Festival has been a loyal benefactor to Kealakehe Project Graduation for many years, and we are ever grateful! Students help the event by servicing their recycling efforts prior to the festival. It's fun and easy in a beautiful beach environment. If you haven't visited this event, perhaps you will consider attending in 2019. Your support helps us and many other non-profits.
Students support Kealakehe Project Grad by signing at least $50 in small or large sponsorships who donate to the Hawaii Hotel Industry Charity Walk Hawaii Island. KHS and WHEA Junior classes - this is how YOU help to keep your Project Grad event affordable. Pay it forward and plan to join us! Community members may donate to Charity Walk and name Kealakehe Project Grad as their chosen charity.
The 2nd Annual "Roll in the Holidays" Bowling Party was a hoot! Held at KBXtreme Family Entertainment Center, 8 teams enjoyed bowling, food and refreshments, and many left with treasures from the silent auction. Mahalo to all participants, donors to the silent auction, and high bidders for supporting this fundraiser! We hope to have your support next year - it's a really fun event for a really great cause!
Getting to the beach early makes a special day for volunteers at the annual Lavaman Triathlon. Enjoy waking with the birds and help us at the next Lavaman on March 31, 2019. Project Grad will need 12 fun volunteers to set up registration and timing tags on race participants.
Over 40 students and a handful of teachers and PG Committee members performed set up and break down duties for Ironman World Championship Kona 2018. It was rewarding to work a small part of this big community event. Mahalo, Ironman, for the opportunity to raise funds and contribute to this community event.
