All funds raised stay right here in Maui County for those in need – our mothers, sisters, aunties, daughters and friends,” said Toni Rojas, Queen Kaʻahumanu Center marketing director. “This year we are raising funds to purchase a Faxitron Surgical Imaging System for our community hospital’s operating room, specifically used for breast cancer biopsy measurements.”
