ST. GEORGE — Friends and colleagues are throwing a luau party in honor of Kolei Maile, the Pine View High School assistant football coach who died on Christmas Day.

Proceeds from the event will go to benefit Maile’s wife Nisi and their four children. It is scheduled for Monday evening from 6-8 p.m. at Pine View High School.

According to a previous report from St. George News, the offensive line coach felt sick during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and was subsequently hospitalized. Kidney and liver failure ultimately took his life on Dec. 25.

Tickets, which range from $10-$20, may be purchased in advance or at the door.
