Hawaii Food & Wine Festival mahalo reception

Organizers and sponsors gathered at the Ka’Ikena Restaurant at Kapiolani Community College for a reception


Posted February 5, 2013 by Ed Morita

I’m proud and excited to once again be the official blogger for the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival.

Plans are underway for the 2013, but before things go into full swing, the organizers and sponsors gathered at the Ka’Ikena Restaurant at Kapiolani Community College for a reception to thank those who helped to make the 2012 festival a huge success.

At the gathering, event co-chairs Roy Yamaguchi and Alan Wong awarded $210,000 raised by the festival in partnership with the visitor industry to five nonprofit organizations.

You can read more about the nonprofits and view photos from the event on my blog at hawaiifoodandwinefestival.com.
