Neil Everett of ESPN Supports Lahainaluna High School
Help us support the students of the oldest school west of the Rockies
July 15, 2014

By Betty Sakamoto

As proud supporters of the students and faculty of Maui's famed Lahainaluna High School, we like to give back to this fantastic school whenever they are in need; be it of additional school funding, promotion of a special event, scholarship awards, or virtually any other form of support in which we can assist. To this end, we would like to ask you, our friends and family to help us in supporting the completion of the Lahainaluna multi-purpose sports and events stadium. While support has thankfully poured in during the early phases of this improvement project, there is a bit of work still remaining to fully complete the Luna's new stadium. To help complete this amazing new stadium, the Lahainaluna High School Foundation is holding a benefit stadium bleacher campaign. Sponsor a row of seats through this campaign and not only will you get the satisfaction of having helped current and future generations of Maui athletes, but you will also get your name emblazoned on the back of these bleacher seats! Don't just take our word for it: hear ESPN's Neil Everett on the importance of this funding campaign:

Ready to donate? Contact Sakamoto Properties today to show your support for the oldest school West of the Rockies! Mahalo!
