Bringing people together to enhance life in Kaimuki
SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY
WE DID IT! OUR FIRST KAIMUKI SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY WAS A GREAT SUCCESS.
KBPA, along with American Express, EnVision Kaimuki, Ten Twenty, Public Pet and KUMU dedicated Saturday, November 25th to promoting small businesses on the day after Black Friday. Our thanks to the on-air personalities and staff of 94.7 KUMU, all of the merchants who participated and special thanks to KBPA's Small Business Saturday chair Sharon Schneider. We've already started plans for next year in what is hoped to be an annual event. If you'd like to get involved in 2018, please contact us.
T-SHIRTS FOR SCHOLARSHIPS
Watch for our next pop-up t-shirt sale!
Throughout the year, we sell commemorative Kaimuki T-Shirts to raise money for our scholarship fund. They come in a variety of styles, colors and sizes and are everything you're looking for in a t-shirt! As an added bonus: we're blowing out our remaining KBPA Aloha Shirts. Stop by our next sale and get one for a song and know that all the proceeds from our T-Shirt sales go to scholarships for Kaimuki-area students.
You can also order online or purchase at SURF 'N HULA, 3588 Waialae in Kaimuki
