Help Support Hale Makua Health Services
Visitor Industry Charity Walk 2014
March 22, 2014

By Betty Sakamoto

As those whom call Maui home know well, when living in paradise, giving back to our tight knit community is of great importance. While there are many ways to give back, Sakamoto Properties has a number of community organizations in particular which we go to great lengths to support; one of our favorites being Hale Makua Health Services. As Maui's leading adult care services provider, Hale Makua does an amazing job providing much needed services to our community members, particularly those whom are in the later stages of life. These valuable services however, would not be possible without the generous contributions of the many businesses and individuals whom provide support to help enable Hale Makua's high standard of care.

For this reason, we are asking for your help in supporting Hale Makua Health Services via our very own Mitch Mitchell at this year's Visitor Industry Charity Walk 2014. A great event for a great cause, here is all you need to know about the Walk, in Mitch's own words:


As you know, every year I am involved in fundraising for Hale Makua Health Services for their participation as a benefitting charity of the Visitor Industry Charity Walk.

This is a great event for Hale Makua Health Services as a percentage of the funds raised are matched by the Hawaii Hotel and Lodging Association - a chance to stretch our pledged dollars a little further!

On May 10, 2014, I will again be walking the 5k course with the Hale Makua Health Services team. I am asking you to pledge by giving a tax deductable donation to Hale Makua Health Services. I hope that I can count on you for a generous donation, please remember that a donation of any amount is always welcome. We need to turn all donations in by May 2, 2014.

I would like to thank everyone for their generous donations last year. You help me to raise $12,765 towards Hale Makua's total of over $43,000 raised!

Please help us reach our goal this year of raising $45,000 in pledges. Thank you for your consideration and support. Donate Now.

Warmest Mahalo,

Mitch Mitchell

Reasons to Donate:

  • A percentage of the funds raised are matched by the Maui Hotel & Lodging Association, a chance to spread our pledges even further
  • Overwhelming employee support - staff hold plate lunch and bake sales, and other events to raise funds
  • The prizes that I have received have been contributed to Hale Makua Health Services employee recognition

Mitch Mitchell, Hale Makua Health Services
Board Director
Chairman of Development & Community Relations Member of Special Events Committee
