Each year members of the West Hawaii Association of Realtors have an opportunity to recommend charities that they would like to support. The charity organization who receives the most recommendations becomes the Annual Charity of Choice, and will be the recipient of member donations collected at various fundraising events throughout the year. Past recipients include The Arc of Kona, Hale Ohana Aloha, West Hawaii Domestic Abuse Shelter, Habitat for Humanity, and Hospice of Kona. Members present the total donation raised to the charity at an end of year special event.
This year's Charity of Choice is the Kona Historical Society! Proceeds from the golf tournament fundraiser in September, will be presented to the Kona Historical Society at our Annual Membership meeting on December 1, 2017.
