Rotarians throughout Hawaii joined Rotary clubs around the world Oct. 26 to raise money toward the effort to eradicate polio.
Eight Maui Rotary Clubs were at places of business around Maui, along with students from seven Maui high schools, and hosted "Trick or Treat to End Polio Now" collection events.
One Maui Rotary Club held a golf tournament, and funds were allocated to this effort. The goal was to generate $400 per club, hoping to accrue a total of $3,600 in collections. Due to the generous contributions from the community, that goal was surpassed and $4,025 was collected.
Members of the Interact Club at Seabury Hall joined members of the Rotary Club of Kihei Sunrise for the End Polio Now fundraising effort. Kihei Sunrise President Christine Pawliuk (from left) and member Love Smith were joined by Seabury Interact members Reina Tanazaki and Ashley Stoner.
Participating places of business were Safeway in Lahaina and Kahului; Long's Drugs in Kihei, Kahului, Wailuku and Pukalani; and Fernando's Mexican Grill & Cantina at the Queen Ka'ahumanu Center.
