The Big Island Substance Abuse Council (BISAC) hosted one of its annual events in Kona. The Kona Family Fun Day, was an event which celebrated community, promoted positive messages, and provided opportunities to enhance family relationships. Over 15 community organizations participated in providing the community with resources and family-fun activities. In true style, BISAC had carnival games, bouncers, giveaways, family activities, an arm wrestling exhibition, and lots of good tasting food. Hundreds of individuals took part in the event.
BISAC through its events and long standing positive reputation in the community continues to inspire positive change and helps individuals and their families reclaim their lives. The Kona Family Fun Day was made possible by Hawaii County Council members: Karen Eoff, Maile David, and Dru Kanuha. “This event was very successful and we will continue to provide these types of outreach events in the future” said BISAC’s CEO, Dr. Hannah Preston-Pita. “Our next annual event, Summer Jam is scheduled for July 28-29th and we hope to see you all there.”
Since 1964, BISAC has been inspiring individuals and families to reclaim and enrich their lives in the wake of the ravages of substance abuse and mental health. They offer a continuum of services that are culturally appropriate and aligned with the ever-changing behavioral health field.
