We had 150-plus items donated for auction. Regretfully, we are limited by space as to the total number of businesses, organizations and people we can thank. Suffice to say, the Maui community, Mainland and other island supporters of 9th Life Hawai‘i rose to the occasion, and we are truly grateful.
Our thanks to the people who attended the auction and made it a success, to the volunteers who solicited gift certificates, to the volunteers who “manned” the auction, to Mike Moran who emceed, to Julia Galbraith for her immense help in organizing the donations and donor list, and to Doris Pompillio who organized the volunteers. Special thanks to Martin and Claire Murray (California), who sent plenty of items for the auction and obtained numerous gift certificates from businesspeople they knew. Mahalo to the Grand Wailea, Ritz-Carleton, Pi‘iholo Ranch Zipline, Blue Hawaiian Helicopters, sculptor Steven Smeltzer and Bernard Passman Jewelry for especially generous donations. We have now run out of space. To see a complete list of donors, visit www.9thlifehawaii.org.
