Parker School held its eighth annual Kahiau dinner/auction gala for financial aid March 2 at the Fairmont Orchid on the Kohala Coast.

More than 290 people attended and helped the school raise more than $200,000, which is a record so far for this event.

More than 50 percent of the 250 kindergarten through 12th grade students at Parker receive some form of financial assistance, and Kahiau, the school’s largest fundraiser of the year, is key in making this possible.

The Hawaiian word kahiau means “to give generously from the heart,” and every year the school puts on the gala so people can come together in a fun way to give and help provide West and North Hawaii children with a college-preparatory education at Parker.

Parker School wishes to thank the many sponsors, donors, volunteers and attendees who helped make the event a success.
