Governor Lingle solicits donations for Waipio All-Star families

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Waipio All-Stars Little League kids keep on winning, which means families are racking up quite a bit in bills. Governor Lingle had something to say about it Friday.

Lingle recommended that community members support the players' families and coaching staff by donating a bit of their own money.

The team has been on the road since August 4. The media reports that families have incurred expenses of over $10,000 per player.

Tax deductible donations can be sent to the non-profit, Hawai'i Children's Foundation. All contributions will be given to the Waipio team.

Checks should be made out to the Hawai'i Children's Foundation and should clearly say the money is for the Waipio All-Stars Team.

Send those checks to the following address:

Hawai'i Children's Foundation
