The Hawai‘i State Judiciary was recognized yesterday, April 23, during Aloha United Way’s (AUW) annual luncheon at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel in honor of the staff’s successful campaigning efforts to support the community.

An elite team from the Judiciary were presented with the 2015 Spirit of Community Award for the public sector category.  In addition, Audit Manager for the Judiciary, Peter Lam, along with his team from the Internal Audit Office, were presented with a certificate of appreciation for coordinating campaign activities last year supporting Aloha United Way.

“This award is a testament to the generosity of the Judiciary ohana,” said Rodney Maile, Administrative Director of the Courts. “It was through the participation and contributions of each individual that we were able to make a substantial gift of aid to our community, by supporting the work of the AUW.”

The AUW noted that participation at the Judiciary exceeded prior years, and the staff surpassed their 2014 campaign goal by thousands of dollars.

In a letter to the State Judiciary, President and CEO of the AUW, Cindy Adams said, “Because of your support and commitment to help others in our community, we were able to raise millions this year to directly support hundreds of local charities and touch hundreds of thousands of lives.”
