Great Hawaiian Rubber Ducky Race

People all around the island spend February and March adopting duckies for the Great Hawaiian Rubber Ducky Race to benefit the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Hawaii. We try our hardest to support this great cause by holding ducky adoptions at all of our branches.  This year, our members raised over $3,000!

On Saturday, March 30, 2013, our team set up camp at the McCully Shopping Center for pre-race activities.  We had our famous spin-the-wheel game and fun temporary tattoos!  Our team, armed with fishing nets and tons of cheer, braved the morning sun and joined the street collection team.  The pre-race activities were so much fun!  

1:16 pm rolled around and it was time for the race!  The sight of thousands of rubber duckies in the Ala Wai is not something you’d want to miss!  Winners of the race were rewarded with some amazing prizes! This year, the first place duck took home a trip for two to Las Vegas! Second place won a two-night stay at the Waikiki Beach Marriott, and third place received a two-night stay at the Hilton Hawaiian Village!

Bake Sale

Our bellies GROWL when we think of this year’s Bake Sale. On Tuesday, September 25th, more than 30 people brought their delectable donations to the sale– making this the largest bake sale we’ve ever had! The sale offered dishes like comforting beef stew, tasty
macaroni ratatouille soup, bubbly four-bite pizza, sweet strawberry shortcake, indulgent chocolate peanut butter cup cookies, tangy lemon bars, spicy pickled onion, and SO MUCH MORE! Who knew HiTel FCU housed so many Top Chefs? The bake sale was an absolute success, raising more than $1,300 for Aloha United Way! We think it’s safe to say that the best way to help a great cause is with a full and satisfied stomach! Thank you to everyone who donated food and to those who purchased the yummy five-star fare!
