Casual Day 2014 Recap

On Wednesday June 18th HiTel FCU employees celebrated the United Cerebral Palsy Casual Day in casual attire – Jeans, tennis shoes and the UCPA cotton blue t-shirt.  There were 67 employees that donated to the cause, and it was definitely a treat for them to dress down for such a special occasion.

UCPA of Hawaii is part of a nation wide network that provides educational programs and supports research in cerebral palsy.  The credit union participates in their two biggest events, the other being the Hawaiian Rubber Duckie Race at the McCully Shopping Center.

 

Bishop Branch Biz

On Monday, May 12th, HiTel FCU had announced their Bishop Branch relocation on the 11th floor of the Hawaiian Telephone Company Building.  Employees who came to visit the newly opened branch received a special treat – pop-a-licious popcorn!  There was a popcorn bar set up, and there were toppings galore from Arare Mochi Crunch and Fruikake to Raisinets and Gummy Bears.  Everyone had a blast adding goodies to their popcorn.  In addition, members who made any transaction at the teller window received a leather key chain in appreciation of their membership.  The branch is strictly for Hawaiian Tel employees as the credit union can serve all their money needs at a convenient location.  However, in just a few weeks, the Downtown Walmart Branch will soon be opening on Fort Street to service the public.

Globetrotters Honolulu

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.

 

Rubber Ducky Recap

SONY DSCOn 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.  To view more pictures from the event, check out our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/hitelfcu
