For years, Poipu Kai has donated the proceeds from their periodic tennis tournaments to the 29 partner agencies under the Kauai United Way umbrella. “This is a great way for these generous folks to direct their donations to support our whole community,” said Scott Giarman. “We are so grateful for everyone’s efforts.” “That’s right,” added Lynnette Medrano-Stine. “Kauai United Way volunteers spend many hours ensuring that the agencies we support operate efficiently and effectively. It protects our donors.”
Recently, a check was presented in excess of $8000 representing total net proceeds from the Poipu Kai Tennis Tournaments for the past year. This is a whopping 48% increase from the year before, reflecting added tournaments and more players from around the island and even tourists. “Tourists recognize the United Way name and so they feel comfortable knowing the donations will definitely go to do good here in our local community,” said Carolyn Caylor.
Kauai United Way is our island’s umbrella charitable organization. One contribution helps our whole island. Money raised on Kauai stays on Kauai. Kauai United Way’s Partner Agencies offer a diverse array of dozens of social service programs that save lives daily and help tens of thousands of Kauai people every year. When those in need in our community get the professional help they deserve, every one of us is better off. Let’s all live united – the Kauai United Way!
