Kona came out to support the 13th annual Community Cares fundraising event Saturday at Makaeo Pavilion.

Tiana Steinberg organized the annual event that benefits the Community Cares Cancer Resource Center and Wig Closet located in her Tiana’s Avon &Wigs on Luhia Street. The center provides free wigs, hairpieces and turbans to women battling cancer who have lost their hair because of treatment.

“We gathered one last time before saying aloha to our large annual event,” said Steinberg. “This year’s event will also benefit those suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s, with which I have been diagnosed.”

Although this was Steinberg’s final event, donations are still being accepted at her store or by calling 896-6310.
