She truly is a beautiful woman inside and out. 

She was one of those who rallied and responded to Bohol's call for help when a 7.2 earthquake devastated her home province. 

Aside from digging into her own pocket, she was also able to help raise funds to buy some relief assistance to the quake victims

Cheers once again to this amazing Boholana who continues to bring sunshine and smiles in the beautiful island paradise of Hawaii
