The check presentation was held last week Thursday at Lahaina Cannery Mall.

LAHAINA – “I Love Lahaina,” funded by Safeway, Property Development Centers and Lahaina Cannery Mall, recently raised $30,000 for West Maui schools.

This event was a benefit and fundraiser for King Kamehameha III School, Lahaina Intermediate School, Lahainaluna High School, Maui Preparatory Academy, Princess Nahi’ena’ena Elementary and Sacred Hearts School.

“It was a great two-day event, and we are so grateful to Lahaina Cannery Mall, Safeway, Property Development Centers and all the sponsors and auction donors,” said Art Fillazar, student activities coordinator of Lahainaluna High School. “These funds will be of great help to our co-curricular programs.”

“We’re proud to support the West Maui schools in helping to build a solid foundation for the youth of today and support the education of our community,” said Lynn Okamoto, general manager of Lahaina Cannery Mall.
