Boots & Kimo’s ‘Liked What They Saw’ At Wind­ward Club­house

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

The kids at Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii’s Wind­ward Club­house are well-fed and well-funded, thanks to Rick and Jesse Ki­akona of Boots & Kimo’s Home­style Kitchen. The broth­ers do­nat- ed $5,000 to Wind­ward Club­house in De­cem­ber, and then fol­lowed up with a gift of 85 ben­tos for club mem­bers who at­tended more than 104 days in 2014.

“In 2011, my brother Jesse and I showed up at Wind­ward Club­house unan- nounced to take a look around,” re­called Rick. “We liked what we saw, so we de­cided then and there to sup­port the or­ga­ni­za­tion.

“We live, work and play in Kailua, so it’s im­por­tant to us to sup­port the Boys & Girls Club for all the good they do in pro­vid­ing a safe place for our keiki to go af­ter school and dur­ing school breaks — and I’d like to chal­lenge other Wind­ward busi­nesses to do the same.”

BGCH’s Wind­ward Club­house has been based at Kailua In­ter­me­di­ate School since its in­cep­tion in 2006, serv­ing 600 kids an­nu­ally.
