(Victor Valley)– Assemblyman Jay Obernolte (R-Hesperia) honored Kona Ice of the Victor Valley as his Outstanding Small Business of the Month.
Tony and Kim Colver opened Kona Ice of The Victor Valley in 2010. Kona Ice is a mobile tropical shaved ice business, specializing in FUNdraising, festivals and special events. Despite running a successful small business, the Colvers’ real passion lies in volunteering, which they have been doing for over two decades. Since starting their business, Tony and Kim have donated over $85,000 to the local community. Additionally, Kona Ice has been able to donate free services to reward students, and have also helped many organizations to serve the homeless, battered, and less fortunate members of our community.
Tony and Kim have also served as Chair Persons of the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Victorville for several years. Under their leadership and with the help of their committees and teams, they were able to help raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to help fight cancer. Huge strides have been made in cancer awareness and survival over the past decade, and the Colvers are proud to have had a small role in making a difference. They have also supported St. Jude’s Hospital, March of Dimes, Police and Fire Activities Leagues and numerous other organizations.
“Tony and Kim exemplify what it truly means to serve one’s community,” Assemblyman Obernolte said. “They genuinely care about helping those with the greatest needs and have spent both time and money to support various causes throughout the High Desert. It’s an honor to recognize Kona Ice as the Outstanding Small Business for the month of April.”
