Aloha United Way Luncheon

On May 5, 2008, the Aloha United Way's Family and Individual Self-Sufficiency Program hosted a luncheon to honor its extraordinary volunteers and to highlight their impact during the 2008 tax season. Director Susan Tamanaha presented Chaminade's Wayne Tanna with a surprise - he had been the inspiration for the creation of a new award, entitled "The Above-and-Beyond Award." Wayne has been instrumental in all aspects of these successful programs which have returned millions of dollars to Hawaii's homeless and working poor. Student Joseph Schriml and Director of Service-Learning, Candice Sakuda, were also present for the ceremonies.
