Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties Spread Holiday Cheer as Part of Laulima Giving Program

Honolulu – Agents from Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties’ King Street office joined together in the spirit of the holidays to adopt three families as part of the Laulima Giving Program.

Led by agents Tiffany Bove (RA), Jordan Kam (RA) and Khai Tran (RA) the nearly two-week long donation drive collected more than 100 items valued at $1,500 total for the three families. This is the seventh year that agents from Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties’ King Street office have participated in the Laulima Giving Program.

“We wanted to give back to the community as many of the agents are passionate about ensuring that families could celebrate the holidays,” said Tiffany Bove. “This was the first time that the families came to the office to pick up the items. Normally we deliver the donated items to them. It’s nice to have them in our office as all the agents who contributed either gifts or monetary donations could meet the families.”

PATIENT-ARTIST SUSAN FONSECA RECEIVES LOUIS VUITTON ARTS EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIP AWARD FROM REHAB

PATIENT-ARTIST SUSAN FONSECA RECEIVES LOUIS VUITTON ARTS EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIP AWARD FROM REHAB

As part of Rehabilitation Hospital of the Pacific’s (REHAB) Creative Arts Program, patient-artist Susan Fonseca was recently awarded a Louis Vuitton Arts Education scholarship. The award was presented at REHAB’s annual Art from the Heart fundraiser December 4. The scholarship program was created to support REHAB patients who wish to advance their fine arts education.

Fonseca had an interest in art from a very early age, she had talent and was working with acrylics and sketching. But, as an adult she was sidetracked from her art and busy with her daily life, and then suddenly, she was diagnosed with Ossification of the Posterior Longitudinal Ligament (OPLL) – a spinal cord injury, which had left her immobile. Even with surgery, there was a chance she would not walk again.
