Touchdowns for Tatas on Monday, Oct. 30, raised over $18,000 for Pacific Cancer Foundation in one evening.

KAHANA – The Pacific Cancer Foundation and Dollie’s Pub & Caf and The Beach House in Kahana recently teamed up to score big for cancer patients and survivors on Maui.

Touchdowns for Tatas was an idea that Debbie Patton and some friends came up with while catching a sunset on the beach.

They were looking for a way to do something locally to help the folks in their community battling cancer. Along with Jim Anderson and Seth Kuperman, the owner and general manager of Dollie’s and the Beach House, they decided to go all out for the fifth year in a row.

The event took place on Monday, Oct. 30, and raised over $18,000 in one evening.

“We are so thankful for the generous contribution made by Dollie’s with the help of Debbie Patton,” said Nancy La Joy, executive director of the Pacific Cancer Foundation.

“When a nonprofit has the opportunity to partner with business, great things are bound to happen!”

October is known around the world as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the folks at Dollie’s and Beach House saw this as a great opportunity to get involved.
