Doing Business With Good Businesses

I have to use this opportunity to plug a couple of businesses I was truly pleased with recently for their level of customer service. First of all, a few months ago on my way to conduct an interview, I was in a small fender-bender while cruising through the traffic mess that is Kapaa. Needless to say, my car needed a makeover and my insurance company was quick to respond. Thanks to Jesse Corbett of GEICO, who made the entire process so smooth and easy, as well as the Kauai Foreign Cars team, who made my tiny vehicle look brand new again and kept me posted every step of the way. I am grateful for your professionalism and ability to do such an outstanding job …

Volunteer extraordinaire Ric Cox is at it again. He is the genius behind “Adopt-A-Classroom,” which has had such great success over the years and continues to expand. In fact, a new program called “Aloha Angels” recently has branched out from it, dedicated to raising private funds for each of the public elementary schools on-island. So far, they have raised more than $200,000 for Kauai students and teachers, and more than $100,000 through grants. The goal is to distribute $1 million a year. For details on how to donate, email alohaangelsfund@gmail.com …

A recent “Ladies Night,” hosted by The Specific Chiropractic Center turned out to be quite a success. The evening of music and local grinds provided a fun place for women to enjoy the services and products of several small businesses around the island. More than $800 was raised and donated to Boys & Girls Club and Na Lei Wili. Special thanks to these businesses for their donations: Asian Cuisine, Kauai Juice Co., Ha Coffee Bar, Kauai Muscle and Fitness and Deli and Bread Connection
