Proceeds from the event will fund the Bieni Kohler-Johnson Memorial Scholarship at HPA, which currently recognizes two young women who are gifted in athletics, academics or the arts; who understand their responsibility to work hard to develop and share those gifts; and who demonstrate a sincere commitment and willingness to go the “extra mile” for friends, family or a worthy cause.

A portion of the proceeds also will benefit ALS and the North Hawaii Community Hospital Cancer Center through the HPA student service program.
