“Nakamaru Hale provides such an important space for hospice residents and their families who need an alternative to in-home care,” said Laura Varney, Hospice of Kona CEO. “We’re so proud that for 10 years our Royal Tea has brought the community together to not only support the Hale but each other.”
A silent auction featuring one-of-a-kind jewelry, works by local artists, activities, health classes, restaurant gift certificates and more will also be available at the event. Those interested in sponsorships may contact [email protected].


Nakamaru Hale provides a comforting and compassionate home-like setting for up to five hospice patients who need an alternative to home care. The Hale offers respite, transitional or longer-term care during the final months of life.
