Chong Kee, Knoll to speak at QB Club
Kevin Chong Kee of the Aloha Stadium Authority and Tom Knoll, a participant in the first Ironman Triathlon in 1978, will be the featured speakers at Monday's Honolulu Quarterback Club meeting at Maple Garden restaurant.
Chong Kee has been with the Aloha Stadium Authority for six years. In June, Gov. Neil Abercrombie asked for the resignations of all board members. Chong Kee said he expects to have seven out of nine members remain on the board. Chong Kee also will address changes at the stadium for the upcoming UH football season.
Knoll has raised more than $1 million for charity through running, and is the author of "Why Not a Million?"
Lunch is at 11:30 a.m., followed by the noon program. Cost is $15.
