Taverna Maui and Maui Brewing Company recently came together to support the University of Hawaii Maui College’s Culinary Arts Program with a $2,300 donation to the program. The funds, which were generated from ticket sales for Taverna’s March 18 First Anniversary Bash, will provide financial aid for students in need.
“We are proud to provide young, up-and-coming individuals with an opportunity to prosper in the local culinary scene and we have chosen to support this cause because the students are the future of our hospitality industry here on Maui,” said Chris Kaiwi, owner of the Kapalua Bar and Restaurant.
“Our first anniversary event was a huge success with 225 guests enjoying Chef Roger Stettler’s Italian Feast and we are were very appreciative to have Maui Brewing Company partner with this donation, along with Southern Glazer Wine & Spirits,” Kaiwi said. “Taverna will always be committed to being a part of our local community and we will continue to support events like this in the months and years to come.”
