On August 10, 128 golfers gathered at the Kahili Golf Course for the 6th annual Credit Unions of Maui Charity Golf Tournament benefitting Hale Makua Health Services.

The event raised $30,000 for the Maui healthcare organization to assist frail elders and disabled individuals who can no longer live safely at home and are unable to pay for health services.

“This is such a fun event. We are very grateful to have been selected as beneficiary of the Credit Unions of Maui Charity Golf Tournament,” said Hale Makua Health Services CEO Wesley Lo.

Lo said funds raised help in a variety of ways from providing a primary care physician for nursing home residents to ensuring the organization has appropriately trained nursing staff to care for residents.

Since 2014, Kahului FCU, Maui FCU, Maui County FCU, Maui Teachers FCU, Valley Isle Community FCU, and Wailuku FCU have joined together to organize this annual golf tournament to support healthcare organizations. To date over $150,000 has been raised to improve the health of individuals throughout the State.
