Par Hawai‘i Marks 50 Years With $50K Donation

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of its Kapolei refinery, Par Hawai‘i recently donated $50,000 to Aloha United Way, the majority of which came from generous contributions of Par Hawai‘i employees. Since 2017, the petroleum company has raised nearly $525,000 for the nonprofit, and proceeds will benefit AUW’s more than 340 nonprofit agencies that serve the community. Pictured are (from left) Bill Pate, Par Pacific CEO; Emmaly Calibraro, AUW vice president of resource development and donor relations; Mel Colquitt, AUW manager of campaign operations; Mike Vierra, vice president and general manager of Par Hawai‘i’s refinery; and Eric Wright, Par Hawai‘i president.
