Honolulu Little League All Stars need your help

Honolulu Little League All Stars need your help

The Honolulu Little League All Stars 12u capture the 2014 Hawaii State Little League Championship recently against very good competition from all over the state. 

With their win, they secured a berth in the Little League Western Division Championships being played in San Bernardino, California.  If successful there, the team will compete in Williamsport, Pennsylvania for the Little League World Series.

It is an exciting time for the team and their families and the energy level and optimism is extremely positive.  The reality of the current moment, however, is that it is very expensive to take a team from Hawaii to the mainland to represent our state.  That is why we need your help!  We are actively soliciting donations to defray the players and coaches expenses while on this exciting journey.
