A big thank you to all those who came out this past Sunday to join in the fun with 8 Total Workshops and other activities donated by the Barefoot Hawaiian over the 4-1/2 Hour fund-raising campaign for the above charities.

We are proud to announce that through your attendance and contributions, the event was a complete success.  After expenses involved in running this event, a sizeable and substantial donation, shared equally, was provided to Samaritan's Purse and to K9s for Warriors.
