Harbor Gallery owners Gunner and Elli Mench donated $2,456 to the Kohala Watershed Partnership from the proceeds for their recently completed 2014 Winter Wood Show, which drew thousands of visitors and residents. The donation will assist the Kohala Watershed Partnership in their efforts to reestablish an endemic forest on 6,600 acres mauka from Pelekane Bay in Kawaihae.

This donation pushes the total amount that Harbor Gallery has raised for the Kohala Watershed Partnership during the last five years to more than $33,000.With matching grant monies, the donation has been a major help in keeping the project moving forward under the direction of The Kohala Center, which manages and administers the Kohala Watershed Partnership from their office in Waimea.

“This kind of effort is one way local businesses can partner up with non-profit organizations in order to help them achieve their goals and succeed into the future,” said Gunner Mench.
