Charity Walk shows love for Lanai cats
With your help, we raised more than $37,000 during the Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Association’s 41st annual Charity Walk. It was a picture-perfect island day for Lanai’s walk and several of my amazing staff members joined me. Our T-shirts, which showed our supporters names and messages, were a huge hit.
Part of the total will be matched by the HLTA and will allow us to rescue more cats and better serve our community and visitors. We can’t wait to put these donations to work.
Meowy mahalo for all the support!
Our Sanctuary shirts, designed over the years by our founder’s husband Mike Carroll, are a huge hit! Mike volunteered his designs throughout the years. This ukulele-playing cat is Mike’s fifth design for us and is a visitor favorite worn by people from all over the world. You can see some of his art by clicking here.
Walter & Karen Jarman believed in our mission from day one. In addition to giving us our first major gift when our sanctuary was just a dream, they began covering all the costs associated with our T-shirts. When we first started in 2008, we sold approximately 300 shirts and last year we sold more than 2,500!
Our founder Kathy Carroll said, “They really believed in our mission and helped us get to where we are today. Words can’t express our gratitude.”
Many thanks to the Jarman’s for their support over the years.
