Waikiki Lights Golf Fundraiser

A Jungle Golf Fundraiser for Waikiki Community Center

What an incredible year 2021 has continued to be! This year has forced us to re-assess how we can best meet the very real and immediate needs of our community (food, housing, transportation and access to computers), while also continuing to be mindful of how we can make an impact on addressing the longer-term requirements for building a more vibrant and socially equitable future.

 

At the Waikiki Community Center (WCC), we see the devastating effects of how the hardest hit among our community have been those in Waikiki, particularly our kupuna who face greater health issues; are at greater risk of food and financial security, becoming homeless, and losing needed services & social contact. Working class families and their keiki are also hard hit and in desperate need for safe, affordable, and quality childcare.

 

To continue to serve our community, this year we have again re-imagined our Waikiki Lights fundraiser as a fun golf tournament, held in the beauty and safety of the outdoors at the Mid-Pacific Country Club on Monday, September 20, 2021 in Lanikai. In keeping up our event’s reputation of fun, we will feature a jungle themed “Waikiki Lights on the Greens”. Please join us dressed up in your finest jungle or safari gear – something khaki, animal printed, safari hats, neck kerchiefs, or come as you are, to a fun day of golf with delicious dining stations at feature “watering holes”, “gir-raffles” and “big game” prizes.

 

We are profoundly grateful to our generous donors, partners, Board and WCC staff for supporting the work of the Waikiki Community Center, especially over the past year:

  • Emergency Food Pantry increased over 400% serving more kupuna and residents in need.

  •  Tech Savvy Seniors allowed kupuna to maintain their physical, cognitive and social/emotional well-being. Our Virtual Community Center, iPad lending library and tech training opened up new worlds for seniors.

  • Rental Assistance - WCC distributed over $1.5 million dollars in rental for those financially affected by the pandemic.

  •  Kupuna Food Needs – WCC provided over 8,000 deliveries of groceries and hot meals to area seniors in need during the pandemic.

  • Senior Safe Ride – WCC facilitated rides for kupuna to access food, basic supplies and medical care.

  •  Preschool – Ensured safety protocols to continue provide quality early education and close the achievement gap.

 

Please consider supporting us in any way possible by: 1) Sponsoring a golf team, 2) Making a donation, 3) Providing golf team prizes, drawing prizes or prize donation, or 4) Contributing in-kind gifts or services. Any assistance that you can provide is appreciated!

 

Don’t be “lion around”! Let’s go on a fun “jungle expedition” together and make this a “roaring” success to benefit the keiki, kupuna and community in Waikiki!

 

Mahalo Nui Loa!
