Donation drives held at Don’s Mai Tai Bar contribute to statewide relief efforts
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii (June 25, 2018) – In the weeks immediately following the Kilauea eruption, Royal Kona Resort employees initiated donation drives at Don’s Mai Tai Bar during its Thursday music series with local entertainers, Henry Kapono and Johnny Valentine. During the performances, employees collected food and supplies for victims affected by Kilauea’s devastation. The coordinated effort generated two large pallets of food and supplies, and raised over $3,600 in cash. Royal Kona Resort staff recently delivered the donations received to the Puna relief station in Keeau.
“We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our employees and guests,” said Tom Bell, president of Hawaiian Hotels and Resorts, the hotel management group for the Royal Kona Resort. “It is heartwarming to see the community coming together to provide much needed support for our neighbors in need.”
