Project Kokua, a culinary event to support the lava flow relief efforts in Pahoa and Puna will be held on Saturday February 28, 2015 at the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. Our very own Chef Casey Halpern of Cafe Pesto Hilo Bay will be participating on the event. 

Maui and Big Island chefs have teamed up to support neighbors, friends, family, and farmers effective by the lava flow activity. Guests who attend the culinary fundraiser will be served a sampling of dishes by top chefs and restaurants. Organizers are aiming to raise more than $20,000 with at least four businesses or individuals match the proceeds to potentials raise $100,000.

Tickets for the event can be purchased at any of the five East Hawaii Rotary Club locations. Cost is $50 plus one canned good item per person. All proceeds will go to lava relief efforts.
