Declan McCarthy, the General manager of the Mākena Beach & Golf Resort, has been selected to serve as the chair of the 2015 Maui County Charity Walk, according to an announcement today from the Maui Hotel & Lodging Association.
A record $939,821 was raised during the 36th Annual Visitor Industry Charity events held earlier this year on Maui, Molokaʻi, and Lānaʻi. The new tally surpasses last year’s record-setting amount by $104,264.
Similar fundraiser walks are planned on other islands throughout the month, with the Maui event slated for this weekend, Saturday, May 10th. Funds raised from the events benefit hundreds of non-profit organizations around the state, with the Maui event going directly to non-profits within the county.
The Maui Visitor Industry Charity Walk held in Wailuku over the weekend raised $701,716, according to event organizers. When combined with walks on Lanaʻi and Molokaʻi, the event raised $789,816 for Maui County.
