HCUL wins $25,000 for Kapiolani Children’s Miracle Network

on "September 15, 2021 8:26 am"

Our credit unions’ participation in #ilovemycreditunion resulted in a $25,000 donation to Kapiolani Children’s Miracle Network!

A drawing this morning by Illinois Credit Union League/LSC included all leagues with at least five credit unions participating in the #ilovemycreditunion July 30 social media blitz. The prize wheel fell on Hawaii Credit Union League and a check for $25,000 will be sent to Kapiolani Children’s Miracle Network! A huge mahalo to our credit unions for your pledged participation in #ilovemycreditunion!

This $25,000 donation is an awesome start to our August to December fundraiser in memory of Martha Smith who passed away on March 17, 2021. Martha was Hawaii Pacific Health Care System’s executive vice president of Oahu operations and chief executive officer of Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children, Pali Momi Medical Center, and Straub Medical Center. Our goal is to raise $140,000 to purchase a breast ultrasound (US) machine for the hospital to honor Martha, who was a cancer patient.
