The Ukulele Foundation donates ukuleles to The Salvation Army
This past Sunday, The Salvation Army was one of three organizations to receive ukuleles from The Ukulele Foundation at the 9th Annual Ukulele Picnic of Hawaii at Kakaako Waterfront Park. Thanks to Mr. Kazuyuki Sekiguchi, Executive Producer of the event and founder of the foundation, keiki across Oahu (Honolulu, Waianae, Kaneohe, and Kapolei) will have access to ukuleles in their music programs.
Mr. Sekiguchi presented the first ukulele to a Salvation Army keiki and said the donations were to “inspire the next generation” to perpetuate the art of ukulele playing and create beautiful music.
The Salvation Army thanks the Ukulele Foundation of Hawaii for their generous donation to thousands of keiki served throughout our programs.
