Kilohana kai is a non-profit educational scholarship organization that was incorporated in 1995 by members of the McKinley tennis team Alumni and supporters. Through donations and fundraising events such as lu’au dinner, we have been able to provide a modest contribution toward furthering the education of the young people of Hawaii. We hope that many of you will join hands with us now and support our future endeavors. Mahalo to all of you for your generous contributions and support of our efforts.
