January 21, 2012 — The Aloha Section PGA board proudly selected the United Japanese Society of Hawaii (UJSH) to receive a $2,500 donation. The monies raised by the section will be used to help with relief effort from last year’s devastating tsunami which struck the Fukushima Prefecture on March 11, 2011. Of the many non-profit organizations assisting in the relief effort the Aloha Section selected UJSH because 100% of our donation will go to hospitals, schools and other mainstream facilities in need of repair.
On behalf of the Aloha Section board, we would like to recognize Lance Taketa (Public Relations Chair) for taking the lead on this project. His efforts helped raise money from our members and the community. We would also like to ‘Mahalo’ all of our Aloha section members who along with friends and family, donated money initiative.
