Master dressmaker donates $10,000 to Ha‘iku organizations

Jennifer Oberg, a master dressmaker, recently donated $10,000 to The Ha'iku Ho'olaule'a & Flower Festival, which is the main fundraising event for Ha'iku Elementary School. The money will also benefit the Ha'iku Boys and Girls Club and the Ha'iku Community Association. Oberg is the owner of The Perfect Fit.

The charitable donation will be presented during a ceremony at the festival. The money will be used for programs focusing on youth education, enrichment and activities.

"This wonderful little school and its dedicated staff have great needs," said Oberg. "Lack of space is a huge issue, with staff and students jam-packed into the current facility. The special education teachers are even using their bathroom as classroom space."

The festival will be held at the Ha'iku Community Center and Ha'iku Elementary School from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 31. Admission is free. For more information, call Leanna Troesh-Worrell at 283-3222.
