May 17, 2018

Kailua Kona, HI – May 17, 2018 - Associa Hawaii organized a very special Mother’s Day event at the Pahoa Red Cross Shelter for evacuees of the recent Kilauea volcano eruption on the island of Hawaii (Big Island.)

The scorching lava has already destroyed dozens of homes and vehicles and damaged more than 37 structures, forcing thousands of residents to evacuate their homes. The Associa Hawaii team worked with volunteers and organizations to provide a fun and meaningful event on Mother’s Day for all affected by this devastating disaster.

The incredible event was attended by more than 180 moms, 60 volunteers, countless national and local organizations, and the Associa Hawaii team, the moms were treated to a day of pampering, entertainment, food and festivities and gifted complimentary massages, essential oil gift bags, flowers and chocolates, salon services and much more. The crowd was entertained by Unity Nguyen and Band of Angels and feasted on catering sponsored by Associa Hawaii and Maulka Rotary.

“This event truly shows just how amazing and resilient Hawaii and the people of this island are,” stated Pauli Wong, Associa Hawaii president. “I want to say a big mahalo to all of the volunteers and organizations working together to provide these deserving mothers and their families with a day to celebrate and connect with the community. A special acknowledgement to Marisa Bankston of Associa Hawaii and Joy Wu of u2U for organizing the festivities; these volunteers are a shining example of “aloha” and I could not be more proud to be a part of this extraordinary community and team.”
