Parker School raises more than $215,000 for financial aid through gala

Parker School raised more than $215,000 at its 9th annual Kahiau, a dinner/auction gala for financial aid, on March 8 at the Fairmont Orchid on the Kohala Coast. More than 230 people attended.

More than 50 percent of the 270 kindergarten through 12th grade students at Parker receive financial assistance, and Kahiau, the school’s largest fundraiser of the year, is key in making this possible. The Hawaiian word kahiau means “to give generously from the heart,” and every year the school puts on the gala so people can come together in a fun way while helping provide community children with a college-preparatory education at Parker.
