Kamuela residents Suzanne Brown and her daughter, Brynly Brown, attend the late February charity event.

More than 200 people, many who were decked out in cowboy attire, attended North Hawaii Hospice’s annual charity event Feb. 24 at Waikii Ranch. With a “High Country Tea” theme this year, $60,000 was netted for patient care services, part of which came from a special auction that brought in $23,000 in direct donations.
