July 4th and Veteranʻs Day Festivity sponsorship

OKK fully funds an annual July 4th Parade Celebration & Keiki Fun Day which includes free food, bounce houses and inflatable water slides for the kids. Senior citizens are treated to an afternoon of bingo and a separate luncheon. And in 2018, OKK began sponsoring a Veteranʻs Day Celebration featuring free lunch for everyone who attended, multiple entertainers who donated their time and informational booths honoring our veterans.  And most importantly, we publicly honored those who served, continue to serve, as well as those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.  

BELOW:  Scenes from The 2020 JULY 4th Celebration with social distancing. We also paid celebrated wayne kawachi being named a "brawny giant" for his contributions to the community.  this award by the brawny towel company resulted in a $10,000 donation to OKK. Mahalo Brawny and mahalo candy casper for nominating him!  thank you everyone for turning out.  it was great to reconnect during this

challenging time.
