On Friday, August 22, 2014, HiTel FCU volunteered at the annual Kapiolani Radiothon for Kids. Throughout the two-day event, there were other volunteer groups that helped with the live phone bank. Phones were ringing off the hook gathering generous donations from many callers, while GEICO Hawaii matched each of those donations during the “Power Hour.” 100% of all proceeds will stay in Hawaii and be used to purchase medical equipment, assist with neighbor island travel, and to fund education and research programs. Thank you again to everyone who donated a gift of a miracle to Hawaii’s children and their families.
The famous Harlem Globetrotters entertained people of all ages at the Neal Blaisdell Center on Saturday, April 26th. It was a day full of pre-game festivities followed by a delightful exhibition game. When the doors first opened, HiTel FCU had a table set up for a drawing to win two side line tickets, and the lucky winners were announced just minutes before the game.
Both our athletic mascots took the court as they were announced as “Honorary Globetrotters Team Captains!” Yoko and Kalea received a certificate of appreciation and had a paparazzi photo shoot with some key members including players, coaches, and their mascot Globbie.
On Saturday, March 22nd our team of eager employees joined with the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Hawaii to kick off an exciting day full of activities and live entertainment at McCully Shopping Center. HiTel FCU set up a booth with their famous spin the wheel passing out a variety of prizes to the community. Other members of the group lined up along Kapiolani and McCully collecting donations by generous donors. The credit union alone had raised over $5,200 prior to the event. We would like to thank everyone who donated both their time and monetary donations to help the children of Hawaii.
