Kona Stories Books to Commemorate Shadow’s Passing
Kona Stories Book Store will hold a special memorial event on Saturday, July 9, 2016, in honor of it’s mascot, Shadow, who passed away on July 2, 2016.
“Shadow was a big part of many lives and we would like to announce this opportunity for the public to attend her memorial,” said Brenda Lea McConnell, owner of the bookstore.
“She had been part of our ‘ohana since 2007,” said McConnell. “She was our official greeter and will be greatly missed by our community who came by often just to pet her.
To celebrate her life, the store is offering a special day: McConnell will make her “almost-famous” sangria that will be served with cookies. Alcohol-free beverages will also be available.
Guests are invited to write their Shadow remembrances in a memorial book, and customers will receive a free one-of-a kind Shadow bookmark.
Kona Stories will donate 10% of the sales from Saturday to AdvoCats.
“We encourage anyone wanting to make further donations to do so in her honor that day,” McConnell said.
A donation calabash will be available at the bookstore.
Donation can also be made directly through AdvoCats’ website.
