A weekend fundraising event in Wailea turned shopping into a mission of sharing for less fortunate families on Maui.

The Sharing, Shopping & Symphony event was organized by agents at Windermere, Valley Isle Properties,who donated a total of 150,000 of their own Hawaiian Air miles as a Grand Prize.

“It has been an amazing journey…as so many people showed their hearts and gave to us,” said Leslie-Ann Yokouchi, President of Windermere, Valley Isle Properties.  “I am especially proud of my agents for every one gave something in terms of financial support or of their time. I am so proud of them,” said Yokouchi.

Agents also donate a portion of their commission from real estate sales year-round to the company’s foundation.
