Maya Anderson, Reporter

The Kohala Hospital Charitable Foundation Fundraiser took place on Saturday, May 16 at Kahua Ranch. The theme of the fundraiser was “Beer, Boots, Brats, and BBQ”.  They held a silent auction, live auction, donation and ticket sales. The main live auction item was a handmade ukulele made out of koa wood which was sold for $38,000.  The Kohala High School Leo Club also helped with the fundraiser by serving foods and waiting on tables.

They found out a couple of days ago that they had raised about $75,000 for Kohala Hospital. The money raised will be used to purchase a portable x-ray machine and a hot and cold cart for long-term residents.
