Kaua'i is all about ‘ohana. ‘Ohana extending beyond immediate family to include friends, neighbors and co-workers. The annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk raises funds to help our island community through programs from keiki to kupuna and everything in between. Whether it is with after school programs for youth or providing housing for residents needing to travel to O'ahu for medical care, every dollar raised stays on island. When those in need receive, we all win. I proudly support HLTA’s Visitor Industry Charity Walk and am happy to be a part of something that makes Kauai a better place.

"What’s most meaningful about the Charity Walk is that it’s the visitor industry’s way of showing its profound appreciation for the community by way of its fiscal contribution. We continue to fundraise and, thanks to the unparalleled support of our hospitality industry, and the generosity of many HLTA members, are able to provide assistance to hundreds of local nonprofits across our islands."
