May 2021 Executive Directors Message

A huge MAHALO to all of you who participated in our 13th annual golf tournament at Pearl Country Club. We were able to achieve our goal and continue to fulfill our mission and support the many initiatives of Hawaii’s Restaurant industry.

lt was nice to see all of you in living color again! To our players, sponsors, food and beverage suppliers, prize and goodie donors, and volunteers, you ALL made this a special event.

The day started off with a blessing of Aiea sprinkles which turned out to be a super sunny day. It appeared that all 160 golfers had a good time as smiles and laughter were felt throughout the course and no one went home hungry or thirsty.


Congratulations to our golf tournament winners:
