On behalf of the Culinary Institute of the Pacific at Kaua‘i Community College, I would like to extend our deepest appreciation and mahalo to everyone who helped make this fundraising event a great success. With your help, the tickets sold out in a little over two weeks and in addition we were able to garner much needed sponsorships from our Kaua‘i businesses.
Volunteering for an event of this size and complexity says a lot about all those who helped. Many months of intricate planning and organizing is rewarded when the music starts, the doors open and the guests are able to enjoy the greatest and latest in culinary fashion matched with the most delicious wine pairings; together with a fantastic blind auction with prizes valued over $8,000! What a great gathering of happy faces and happy tummies!!
Thank you for making this event an opportunity for our culinary arts students to work alongside the biggest names in Island Chefs, Alan Wong and Vikram Garg, as well as Kaua‘i’s best chefs! Because of your warmth and hospitality, these great chefs are looking forward to participating in next year’s event.
We thank all the volunteers for making Kaua‘i’s signature event a great success and one of the best on Kaua‘i.
