We wouldn't be able to do what we do without the help of these wonderful people. They are professionals in everything that they do and are an absolute joy to work with. As businesses they are our partners but to us they are ʻohana. MAHALO PIHA to these hardworking, community minded companies!
FOOD EDUCATION & CATERING
There is food. And there's food with a great story. The kind of story that conjures the aroma wafting from your family’s kitchen. The kind of story that recalls the traditions of our ancestors. The kind of story that brings us together around a table. Stories that come from food planted with care, raised with compassion, harvested with gratitude and enjoyed with family. Food that honors the voice of every ingredient.
VOLUNTEER SUPPORT & EDUCATION
HIHO (Hands In Helping Out) is an organization dedicated to creating positive volunteer experiences that create long lasting change within our community. They see the value in service as a means to build relationships, conversations and meaningful connections. They believe in the power of the individual to enact change no matter how big or small. And above all, they believe that the most important part of service begins and ends with us.
BREWERY & PUB
Kona Brewing Company
Kona Brewing Company was started by father and son team Cameron Healy and Spoon Khalsa. The pair had a dream to create fresh, local island brews made with spirit, passion and quality. Their love of Hawaii, and a desire to protect the pristine environment here, brought them to the Big Island to fulfill their vision. Kona Brewing continues to be headquartered right where it began, in Kailua-Kona on Hawaii's Big Island and contribute many delicious cold ones to our events for not-for-profit organizations.

I love making pictures; I think it is because Iʻm not that great with words. I am from Mānoa, Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi and graduated from the University of Hawaiʻi Mānoa. I have been a french fry cooker, burger flipper, math tutor, social worker, information technology specialist, database programmer, sailing and navigation instructor, dishwasher, host, bartender, waiter, and restaurant manager. From 1999 to 2005, I was blessed with the opportunity to sail with the Polynesian Voyaging Society on the double-hulled sailing canoe, Hōkūleʻa. For the last 5 years, I have been extremely lucky to be the program coordinator for the marine fellowship program at The Nature Conservancy of Hawaiʻi. I am now so very thankful to be a husband to a beautiful, intelligent wife and father to two little winged, tornado spinning monkey children.
