In support of Hospice of Hilo, Aiona Car Sales sold a 2006 Mercedes Benz M-Class ML350 and donated all the proceeds to Hospice of Hilo.

The car, with only 58,000 miles, sold for $10,000.

“We’re so grateful to the Aiona family in their support of our programs that help patients and families live better by bringing them care and comfort in their time of need,” said Hospice of Hilo CEO Brenda S. Ho.

In 1998 Aiona Car Sales opened its doors to the community and has been delivering on its mission of providing quality vehicles at a fair price. The Aiona family has had personal experiences with hospice care and deeply believe in its mission and work.

“Hospice is an amazing service. They do great things for our community. This is our way of giving back for the care they have provided for our family and the many, many ohana throughout our community. We’re lucky to have Hospice of Hilo here and are proud to support what they do,” Pat Aiona Sr. said.

Since 1983, Hospice of Hilo has been ensuring that every life is touched by compassionate care, helping individuals and families find comfort and sense of peace during their time of need.

Currently Hospice of Hilo runs a Home Care Program, an inpatient care center, a bereavement program for adults and children, and a Pre-Hospice Transitions Program, and is opening up Hawaii Islands first Palliative Care Center in January 2014.
