Our phone bank lit up last evening with phone calls from viewers making contributions to PBS Hawaii!
Taking viewers' calls were members of our PBS Hawaii Board of Directors, above. Board Member Jimmy Borges, one of Hawaii's premier vocalists, in the snazzy red velvet jacket above, co-hosted the evening with me (that's me to his left, above). Our featured show was GREAT PERFORMANCES featuring Andrea Bocelli, Celine Dion, Tony Bennett and others in Central Park. Great concert!
Way to go, Hawaii! We're grateful for everyone who made donations, especially after last month's fire that has us operating out of a smaller borrowed television studio for the time being. We received a lot of encouragement and well wishes from callers throughout the state.
Board members pictured above, from left to right, are: Darren Kimura, Marissa Sandblom of Kauai, Joan Husted, Dr. Keiki-Pua Dancil of Maui County, Jean Kiyabu, Board Chair Robbie Alm, Gayle Harimoto, Jimmy Borges, me, and Jason Fujimoto of Hawaii Island.
If you haven't donated and would like to, remember your contributions are tax-deductible and we're approaching the end of the year... www.pbshawaii.org/donate
