KANEOHE, HI-- While in town for the Sony Open in Hawaii on January 11, 31 members of the PGA TOUR Wives Association (PTWA) visited Ke Kula 'o Samuel M. Kamakau Elementary and delivered bags of food and goodies to the school’s 128 students as part of the third annual Blessings in a Backpack event. Designed to feed elementary school children whose families qualify for the federal free and reduced-meal program, but may not have any or enough food on the weekends, the program was co-sponsored by the Friends of Hawaii Charities, Sammy Hagar and the Mark and Debi Rolfing Foundation. During the visit, students presented each PTWA member with a handmade lei crafted from plants grown on the school property and taught them traditional Hawaiian games and dances. The wives also enjoyed lunch with the children and learning about the culture of the school, which focuses on both academics and the preservation of Hawaiian language and traditions.
