Two Wheels and a Cause
The Sons of Hawaii Motorcycle club revved into town Feb. 15, bringing with them support for a good cause.
Each year the club comes to Molokai with a makana for a nonprofit, and this year they presented Ka Hale Pomaika`i recovery center in Mana`e with $500 to go toward groceries for the house where they offer support and services to people recovering from addictions or alcoholism.
“The Sons of Hawaii wanted to improve the image motor cycle clubs have and reduce the stigma associated with them,” Shari Lynn of Ka Hale Pomaika`i said. “In that way we have a common force. When an addict becomes a recovering person, it is hard to overcome the stigma of that.”
Sons of Hawaii member John Cluney said the the club participates in charitable events and causes state-wide.
“Because Molokai is where I spent much of my youth and also where I returned to work for a time, the island continues to hold a space in my heart,” Cluney said.
