Kidz For a Cause campaign reaches milestone by raising $350K
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Confetti rained down as a nearly year-long fundraising campaign wrapped up Sunday evening at the Iwilei Pomaikai Ballroom.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawaii was presented a check for more than $350,000 by Kidz For a Cause.
The money was raised over eight months by the completely kid-run group founded in Hawaii.
Funds were raised at art exhibits, a cartwheel-a-thon, a skateboard clinic, bake sales and even a K-pop festival.
"Today is our finale, it's the culmination a celebration for what all these kids have done," said Nicki Lee, founder of Kidz For a Cause. "Not only did we raise money for the Hawaii house, it also supported and it expanded to California for the first time this year, and it was exciting to see this new chapter for Kidz For a Cause unfold."
Kidz For A Cause was created by Lee 10 years ago as a community service project for her third-grade class.
