Help Holly Help

Carwash proceeds to support Maui resident’s mission in Africa.

Support Maui resident, Holly Robertson, on her journey to lend a helping abroad on Friday, Nov.19, during K-Rock’s A-Train Bikini Carwash from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. at Blackie’s Pit Stop, located off Pi‘ilani Highway in North Kïhei.

HIV and AIDS effect people all around the world, but no place have impacts been more damaging than in Africa—especially sub-Saharan countries such as Ethiopia, where thousands of people die every day.

These tragic deaths have even more tragic consequences, as there are over 1.4 million children in Ethiopia who have been orphaned by the pandemic.

Robertson will be traveling to Ethiopia on a self-funded trip, donating her time and energy to the Layla House, an orphanage run by an American adoption agency called Adoption Advocates International.

“Beyond any and all duties they need help with, I will be bringing supplies and projects to help the children learn about health, nutrition and self-sustainability through the planting gardens at the orphanage,” said Holly, of her upcoming journey of hope, love and compassion.

Getting to the country to assist though takes a little assistance. Adoption Advocates International has no budget for volunteer support.

“So, any help is appreciated and you will know that your funds have helped,” said Robertson.

By attending the carwash, you can help support the orphanage Robertson will visit in December and January. All proceeds will go to support the education, supplies and care for the orphans at Layla House.

The goodhearted, fun and frisky carwash on Nov. 19 will be broadcast live during “Maui’s favorite classic rock radio show,” the A-Train with Johnny A on K-Rock’s 97.3 FM.

Get your car, motorcycle or golf cart washed by the “A-Train Bikini Babes” at Blackie’s Pit Stop in Kïhei and win giveaways while enjoying free, delicious Odwalla from “Kevin the Odwalla Balla.”
