~~<p>Three community leaders &mdash; singer <strong>Jimmy Borges</strong>, businessman <strong>Seymour Kazi&shy;mir&shy;ski</strong> and music and recording exec <strong>Leah Bernstein</strong> &mdash; have launched a spirited Make 'Em Smile campaign, tapping local luminaries and celebs to join in and visit and entertain youngsters afflicted with cancer. The program, the 78-year-old Borges says, requires a few hours a week from the participants, who journey to Kapiolani Medical Center for Women &amp; Children on Wednesdays to bring cheer to the ailing patients. Shriners Hospital has added Fridays, and Tripler Medical Center heard about the program and signed on, too. Folks such as <strong>Loretta Ables Sayre, Augie Rey, Tahiti Rey</strong> and <strong>Johnny Valentine</strong> already have given time and talent to the cause.</p>
