silent auction to benefit Fisher
House at Tripler Army Medical will be held on site. Fisher
House has been compared to a Ronald McDonald House for military families.
It is a place for families to stay while visiting their hospitalized
son, daughter, husband, or wife. There is no cost to the family to
stay, only the volunteer spirit to maintain the space for all families
who will use it and the Spirit of Aloha.
Film Festival Executive Director, Leo Sears, is a twice wounded Marine
from the Vietnam era and understands first hand the benefit of support.
