matching challenge met and increased

June 18, 2009

We are so pleased to announce that thanks to your support, we have met the $10,000 anonymous donor matching challenge, with $10,165 raised!


 The challenge has been increased! Please see Elaine Hiel’s note below:

 From Board Member Elaine Hiel:

On June 14, Mo`olelo completed a successful run of GOOD BOYS, a play that dealt with the aftermath of a school shooting and addressed issues of grief, responsibility, and forgiveness.

June 14 was also my husband Joe Hiel’s birthday. To celebrate both his memory and the completion of Mo`olelo’s residency at the La Jolla Playhouse, I decided to up the current $10,000 matching challenge that an anonymous donor offered Mo`olelo in April. Their having already raised $10,165 to date, I am increasing that challenge by $1500, meaning $11,500 raised from individuals, will be matched dollar for dollar, bringing in a total of $23,000. This gesture supports what would have been Joe’s pride in the Company’s commitment to their mission in the future.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart to so many of you who contributed in Joe’s name last year. Now I invite you to consider helping in what ever way possible to meet this current challenge. You may donate online here, over the phone by calling us at 619-342-7395, or you may donate by mail by sending a check payable to “Mo`olelo” to:

Mo`olelo Performing Arts Company
PO Box 710564
San Diego, CA 92171-0564.

You will be mailed a donation receipt for your records and we will recognize your gift online and in our next playbill.


Elaine Hiel
