It is with great sadness that we report of our good friends, Leopoldo and Brenda and Leon Bringas, and Dean Sheldon losing their home due to $530,000 fire damage. Leon who is suffering from kidney failure and Dean tried frantically with their garden hoses to stop the fire, but it was too intense. In the fracas Leon fractured his ankle and had to be pulled from the fire by his neighbor.
Thank God no lives were lost. The Bringas Ohana and their good family friend, Dean Sheldon, loss everything, I mean, everything.
VWs lost were a Bug, two Things, and a Squareback. The ’71 Crew Cab was the only survivor. In the Channel 2 news Leo showed pictures he kept in his Crew Cab of his ‘girls’ lost to the fire.
The Bringas loss is our loss. The greater VW community will assist and help the Bringas Ohana in any way we can. During tonight’s Cruise Night at Laulani Village Shopping Ctr near City Mill, Kenneth ‘Kokomo’ Ho carrying two plastic jars hustled for donations and cruisers graciously gave and gave. Donations does not stop. Donations will continue to be accepted at Matsumoto’s Okazuya at 1323 Gulick Ave., Honolulu, HI 96819. Off-island donators may mail to Matsumoto’s Okazuya. Cash, personal check (made out to cash), or USPS money order will be accepted. No paypal. The donation box at Matsumoto’s will be out until May 15th, then final collection at the Vintage VW Club of Hawaii swap meet on Sun. May 17th. Please give generously from your heart.
