Royal Lahaina raises $25,000-plus for Visitor Industry Charity Walk
KAANAPALI — The Royal Lahaina Resort exceeded its fund-raising goals and was Maui’s top hotel producer, generating more than $25,000 in support of the 2009 Maui Hotel & Lodging Association 31st annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk.
At sunset on May 9, the Royal Lahaina hosted “An Evening in Paradise.” The celebration included a silent auction and concert by Henry Kapono.
This special event was combined with other onsite, employee-run fund-raising efforts for the Charity Walk.
Gary Hogan, president of Hawaiian Hotels & Resorts, which manages the Royal Lahaina, said, “We are very proud of our employees who worked so hard to help make this important event so successful. Many people across the state will benefit from their diligent, unselfish fund-raising efforts.”
