Aloha Kakou, Wow!  What a wonderful weekend it was for our 11th annual charity event. We thought our 10th anniversary last year was our best ever.  This year eclipsed that in terms of participation, attendance, and funds raised for scholarships. We had 170 players and over 100 matches which makes our event the largest non-sanctioned tourney in the state of Hawaii 11 years running and you were a part of it.  Participants and attendees of all ages came from near and far ... across the island, across the state, and from the mainland as far as the East Coast. With your help, we raised over $16,000 which will be awarded to the next group of deserving students and adding to the more than 80 students our scholarship program has helped in the past 10 years. We thank and applaud all participants, volunteers, sponsors, donors, spectators, and supporters of our non- profit all volunteer army charity event.  We deeply and sincerely appreciate your support in coming together as a community to help keikis who aspire for a better future through higher education. We’d also like to extend a heartfelt mahalo for your donations ($1,300) to help Michael Bartholome as he undergoes medical treatment for leukemia.  If you’d like to make a donation to help with Michael’s treatment, please contact Melissa Virtue at (808) 936-8206. We also honor and pay tribute to a very dear friend Albert Medeiros who passed away recently.  He was a kind hearted upstanding person as well as a gifted athlete.  He was a champion at our tournament a number of times.  His longtime friend and tennis partner Gary Arao returned to play and win in his memory.  Albert, you are deeply missed. Mahalo to our Sponsors who made this event possible:  McDonald’s of Hawaii, Kona Auto Center, Hawaii Electric Light, Tony Doliente, Dr. Sonny Genio MD, MacArthur Sotheby’s International Realty, Big Island Sailing Foundation, Natural Gut Warehouse, Guts and Glory Tennis, HFS Federal Credit Union, Associa Hawaii, Hamakua Country Club, Tenniscize, Point Financial, Alii Gas, Bank of Hawaii, Mason Termite, KonaTrans, Teresa Paulson, Royal Hawaiian Seafarms Inc., Dr. Kelly Shaw DDS, Wayne and Beverly Yamauchi, Kossoff-Zalewski Ohana, Lisa Malapit, and Lito and Sol Ilagan. Mahalo to all our auction donors and onsite vendors whose contributions made for a successful event. Mahalo to the Kona Visayan Club (KVC) who is our co-organizer. Under KVC President Jane Clement's leadership, KVC provided invaluable behind the scenes support before, during, and after the tournament.  And of course, they provided the ono foods like pancit, adobo, etc. as well as snacks, fruits, desserts, and refreshments both days. A huge mahalo to the GLI tennis committee Al Honey, Jeff Kam, Neal Ohata, and Lei Punihaole whose invaluable help made this tournament run so smoothly.  Mahalo also to Mai Kobayashi and Fletcher Olson, Donna Bondallian, Richard Kahalioumi, Randy Kunimoto, and others who helped with the tournament. A very special mahalo goes to Tony Doliente who was not only a sponsor but was also a very active volunteer and an incredible resource during the tournament.  Finally, we thank YOU and everyone in the the community whose generosity and support help fuel our efforts to help graduating seniors pursue their dream of higher education.  After all, it is not about any of us.  It’s about them .... our keiki. Sincerely, Lovette Llantos Founder and Tournament Director Board Member, West Hawaii District Tennis Association (WHDTA)
