Island Foundation Logo Winner
By Barbara Haliniak
Congratulations to Michael Onofrio, winner of the Molokai Island Foundation’s (MIF) logo contest. Michael was presented with a $200 check for his winning design, which depicts a gourd, a vine that reaches out and bears a hard shell fruit used as an implement (ipu) adorned with kukui nuts and leaves. This exemplifies the foundation’s purpose: to reach out into the community, to serve and support its needs.
Michael graduated from Molokai High School in 2013 and is about to begin his junior year at Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island, where he majors in graphic design. Michael is ready to give back to the community and assist with graphic design projects. To contact him, visit michaelonofrio.com.
Be on the lookout for MIF’s logo celebrating the organization’s 10th anniversary serving the Molokai community through its annual events. These include the Maui Hotel & Lodging Molokai Charity Walk (first Saturday in May), Happy Holidays Molokai Style Christmas Light Parade and Ho`olaulea, five-pound Rice Give-a-Way (first Saturday in December), the Senior Luncheon (a Friday in December) and supporting education through involvement with Maui Economic Development Board’s Women in Technology STEM Works Ke Alahele Education Fund (year round).
