    This years' annually selected Charity of Choice is the Kona Historical Society. 

    The Kona Historical Society is a community based, non-profit organization that was founded in 1976 to collect, preserve and share the history of the Kona districts supported by over 1000 members internationally. 

    The society maintains two historic sites and the Jean Greenwell Archives, which boasts the largest photograph collection on the Big Island: over 140 maps; many rare and out-of-print books; historical records including manuscripts, pamphlets and oral history interviews; and films and videotapes of Kona.

    You can read more on their website www.konahistorical.org. If you are interested in becoming a member or renewing your membership with Kona Historical Society, you can join online, by mail, or by phone at 808-323-3222. 

    Save the date: The first fundraising event is a Golf Tournament at Hokuli'a Golf Club on Monday, September 11, 2017. Download a registration form here.

    Not a golfer? Still want to join in and support the Kona Historical Society? The Golf Tournament will be followed by a luncheon awards ceremony. More information to come, please stay tuned!
