This year we are celebrating “Sweet 16 Years” with the Lahaina Complex After School Tutor Project. The Project was honored in November at a special awards dinner for the CYD Heroes awards program from the State of Hawaii Legislature, which honors Hawaii's children, teens or youth groups who have done extraordinary things to include saving lives, saving the planet, protecting our oceans, contributions to community service, supporting education and other heroic deeds. For more information about this award, go to http://www.cydheroes.com/CYD_Heroes/The_Heros.html.
The goal for the 2017 fundraiser is to surpass the 2015 fundraiser with a $25,000 donation to the program to help defray the program’s cost. Bus transportation for students to and from tutoring sessions, duplication of materials, supplies and snacks are just some of the mounting costs each year. Our bi-annual Aina Nalu fundraiser is a key source of funding for this ongoing program that makes a big difference in the lives of hundreds of students and their families in Lahaina public schools with all volunteer tutors. There is no guaranteed sustaining sponsor for this ongoing successful volunteer project. The annual budget has been supported through community fundraisers such as ours, some county assistance and in kind donations.
