On Friday, July 12th, PATCH hosted our 2013 Annual Benefit Dinner at The Willows in Honolulu. This year’s theme was "A Brighter Future For Our Keiki" and we celebrated Hawaii’s greatest givers – those who care for our keiki. The dinner MC was Jennifer Robbins, from Sunrise Ohana and Hawaii News Now's severe weather team. A record-breaking number of attendees enjoyed fantastic entertainment by Nuuanu YMCA's Hula Hui o Kapunahala (a few of their keiki hula dancers are pictured below) and wonderful music by Darin Leong and Jon Yamasato as well as a silent auction and wine grab.
During the event, PATCH revealed the winners of our “Hawaii’s Favorite Child Care Provider” contest: Beth Okumura of Kailua, Oahu won in the FCC category, Janice Tom of Stepping Stones Academy in Aiea, Oahu won the multi-site Preschool category, and Michelle Yamada from St. Ann's School in Kaneohe, Oahu won in the single site Preschool category! The contest winners received prize baskets with certificates for Lakeshore and Education Works. Semi-finalists Angelica Friedmann and Wendy Costa (FCC), Carlina Eder Da Silva and Nahue Mahoe (Multi-site Preschool) and Melanie Adams and Melissa Paahana (Single-site Preschool) also received recognition and prizes for their great work. PATCH received over 200 nominations and thousands of votes for this year’s contest so congratulations to all our finalists!
