The legacy of the Model Home Project

Hawai‘i CC Alumni & Friends enjoyed a sold-out reunion on Friday, April 28 at UH Hilo. This fun-filled event brought together Model Home alumni, current students, faculty, retired faculty and community supporters. The reunion featured several speakers, an ‘ono buffet dinner and a lively auction.

Thanks to the efforts of the Hawai‘i CC Alumni & Friends and volunteer support, the event raised nearly $40,000 to establish the Model Home Project Endowment Fund at Hawai‘i CC as well as an additional $1,400 to support the Hawai‘i CC Alumni & Friends Endowment Fund. 

Mahalo to the community partners who provided support for this event and helped to create the first Hawai‘i CC Model Home Project Endowment Fund that will provide support for the Model Home Project into the future!
