Miloliʻi Canoe Club needs YOUR kōkua!

Friday, June 19, 2015 — On Wednesday,  June 17th the koa waʻa (canoe) Keahonui was destroyed in a traffic accident on its way to a regatta in Hilo. The Keahonui was a 45 foot long 400 lb koa waʻa that was loaned to Miloliʻi Canoe Club for our inaugural racing season by the generosity of Uncle Bill Rosehill. It was valued at $100K. The driver that hit the canoe also destroyed the clubʻs trailer and the private vehicle that was towing it. The driver had no drivers license, no insurance and was driving a vehicle he didn’t own. Knowone was injured in the accident. Pa‘a Pono Miloliʻi is a small non-profit organization in Miloliʻi that supports the Miloliʻi Canoe Club and its 22 paddlers. We humbly ask for your help in replacing what we lost. ANY DONATION would be greatly appreciated.  If you’d like to help, please consider a monetary donation. All donations are tax deductible by the IRS.
