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.
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.

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!
