The Rotary Clubs of Maui are sponsoring a special fundraiser for Hawai'i Island, parts of which suffered significant damage from Hurricane Iselle earlier this month.

This fundraiser will be held on Sunday, September 7, 2014 at the Maui Tropical Plantation. This is a special culinary event featuring some of Maui's finest chefs and live entertainment.

Tickets are $50. You can pick them up at any Da Kitchen location, a Rotary Club of Maui or by calling 808-989-4733.

Proceeds go towards supporting the communities of Hawai'i Island affected by hurricane Iselle.

Here is more information off the HawaiiNewsNow website:

"Project Kōkua for Hawai’i Island will give guests a delicious sampling of dishes by top chefs and restaurants from across the island of Maui. The evening will also feature entertainment and a silent auction. Guests will be able to bid on gift certificates from favorite Maui restaurants and specialty items.
Tropical Storm Iselle left the Puna district and other areas of Hawai’i Island in devastation, destroying homes, forests and farms. Thousands of people were left without power and water for days, even weeks. Farmers of coffee, macadamia nuts, flowers and plants suffered huge losses of crops, building and equipment. Papaya farmers suffered the most, with estimated losses of $53 million. Although Iselle has passed, many families and businesses are in need of financial assistance in order to begin the process of recovery and rebuilding.
The event organizers and participants hope to raise more than $20,000. Tickets are $50 per person (includes food and beverages) and are available for purchase at both Da Kitchen restaurant locations in Kīhei and Kahului. Event parking is free."
