Though 2021 marked the first time that O‘ahu’s Visitor Industry Charity Walk was hosted in a virtual format, there was nothing that got between us and our goal of providing support to more than a hundred charities, nonprofits, and other various organizations that count on this event to help them achieve their missions. In 2019, we raised more than $500,00 that was eventually distributed across the island to organizations dealing with homelessness, youth, social welfare, mental and physical health, and our environment amongst a myriad of other issues. This year’s walk returns to an in-person event and promises to be filled with festive fun, good food, and great entertainment.
