HONOLULU – The University of Hawaiʻi raised a record-setting $1,840 for the Aloha United Way (AUW) during its 4th Annual UH-AUW Softball Tournament on September 25, 2009 at the Les Murakami Stadium.
“The UH-AUW Softball Tournament is a great opportunity for the UH community to come together for Aloha United Way’s worthy cause, and I’m happy that I could be a part of it,” said President M.R.C. Greenwood.
President Greenwood kicked off the evening’s festivities by throwing the opening pitch as eight teams prepared to compete in a double elimination tournament. Teams from UH Mānoa, UH West O‘ahu, Honolulu Community College, Kapi‘olani Community College, Leeward Community College, Windward Community College, UH System and AUW contended in the rain from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
After an evening of camaraderie and friendly competition, UH Mānoa claimed the 2009 championship. Under the leadership of co-captains, Vice Chancellors Gary Ostrander and Francisco Hernandez, the Mānoa Green Team took home the prized President’s Trophy.
