Judiciary Receives Aloha United Way Spirit of Community AwardPosted on Apr 24, 2015 in Press Releases
HONOLULU – The Hawaii State Judiciary was selected as a recipient of the Aloha United Way 2015 Spirit of Community Award in the Public Sector Category and was honored, along with an elite group of other community leaders, at the Aloha United Way’s (AUW) Annual Recognition Luncheon on Thursday, April 23, 2015, at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel.
The Judiciary’s Audit Manager, Peter Lam, along with his team from the Internal Audit Office, coordinated the 2014 campaign activities. At the luncheon he was presented with AUW’s certificate of appreciation.
“This award is a testament to the generosity of the Judiciary ohana,” said Rodney Maile, Administrative Director of the Courts. “It was through the participation and contributions of each individual that we were able to make a substantial gift of aid to our community, by supporting the work of the AUW.”
Each year the AUW reviews the annual campaign activities of all participating employers, including staff participation rates, coordinator involvement, special events held, and dollar amounts raised. The AUW notes that the Judiciary staff participation rates exceeded prior years, and the Judiciary surpassed its 2014 campaign goal by thousands of dollars.
In a letter to the Hawaii State Judiciary, Cindy Adams, President and CEO of the AUW said, “Because of your support and commitment to help others in our community, we were able to raise millions this year to directly support hundreds of local charities and touch hundreds of thousands of lives.”
