A weekend fundraising event in Wailea turned shopping into a mission of sharing for less fortunate families on Maui.
The Sharing, Shopping & Symphony event was organized by agents at Windermere, Valley Isle Properties,who donated a total of 150,000 of their own Hawaiian Air miles as a Grand Prize.
“It has been an amazing journey…as so many people showed their hearts and gave to us,” said Leslie-Ann Yokouchi, President of Windermere, Valley Isle Properties. “I am especially proud of my agents for every one gave something in terms of financial support or of their time. I am so proud of them,” said Yokouchi.
Agents also donate a portion of their commission from real estate sales year-round to the company’s foundation.
The elegant evening at the Shops at Wailea also featured entertainment by Harpist, Lisa Porter; The Maui Pops Orchestra with Lily Meola; Bentley Calaway; and Mishka.
