The 20th Anniversary Celebration at our annual Valentine’s Benefit Event was a huge success. We would like to thank our generous event sponsors for making this possible: Dowling Company, Better Homes and Gardens/ Advantage Realty Valley Isle, Dorvin Leis Co, The Boeing Company, The Rice Partnership, and Four Seasons Resort, Maui.
The audience was moved by the heartwarming stories of ADH’s first graduate Casey Shannon, who had her 3rd service dog placement by her side, Wesley. They also met our most recent graduate Heather Tamaye and Hospital Facility Dog Samson from Kapiolani Medical Center, where Samson is already providing comfort to hundreds of children and adults. Finally, 2019 graduate Tom Michaels spoke about how his life has improved with Service Dog Lexi.
We welcomed back Kim Gennaula and Guy Hagi as Masters of Ceremonies and Derick Sebastian who provided live music.
A big mahalo to all those who came out to support Assistance Dogs of Hawaii!
