The University of Hawaii Athletics Department is dealing with a projected $3.5 million deficit.
But the department received a big donation from an unknown angel.
An anonymous donor has given the athletics department $1.2 million.
The check was presented during the UH men’s basketball team at the Stan Sheriff Center.
This comes at a time when the financial state of UH athletics has been in need of some help.
“It really is a pick me up it’s a real vote of confidence at a time when the financial situation is a little bit shaky at UH,” said UH Chancellor, Robert Bley-Vroman.”So, it’s especially important for people to give at this time it really makes a big difference especially now.”
This is the second known donation by the same anonymous donor.
The last donation by this donor came in 2011 and was in the amount of $875,000.
How the money will be allocated has not been released.
