Mini-golf charity takes up cause of grief-stricken children in Hawai'i

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

More than 250 grief-stricken children across Hawai'i are expected to benefit from a charity miniature golf tournament that is being organized by the Hawaii chapter of a trade group for insurance professionals and financial advisors.

Called "Fore the Keiki Mini Golf Day," the inaugural charity event's goal is to raise $25,000 for Kids Hurt Too Hawai'i, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide grieving children with a safe space to express feelings about their loss of a parent to divorce, adoption, incarceration or death.

The Hawaii chapter of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors has scheduled the event for 2 pm, Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014 at the Bayview Mini Putt Course in Kaneohe. The fund-raising event coincides with national Life Insurance Awareness Month, which is designed to draw public attention to the need for life insurance.

The 300-member trade organization is urging potential sponsors to contribute between $500 and $1,500 to the charity event, whose proceeds all go to helping grieving children between ages 3 and 19, who are struggling with sadness and feelings of isolation, draw strength from the kind of support and resources offered by Kids Hurt Too Hawai'i.

For more information about the mini-golf charity event, call (808) 529-6311.
