It’s time once again for The Good Table, the biggest fundraiser of the year for Lanakila Pacific’s Meals on Wheels, and you have until 5 p.m. tomorrow (Sept. 23) to buy your spot. The proceeds all go to help feed our kupuna — it’s a good way to help feed others, for a change.
On Oct. 6, generous restaurant businesses donate a special, creative, upscale dinner for a table for four or six (sometimes, more than one table). Just go to www.thegoodtablehawaii.org and go to “Buy a Table.” You can bid on tables from $200 to $2500 at the restaurants listed in each category. When you go to the site, you’ll see nine categories of tables (some categories are already sold out!). The bidding works like Priceline.com in that you know what restaurants are in each category, but you don’t know which restaurant you’ve gotten till they tell you next week.
Don’t forget, you can split the cost with three other friends, so at the low end, dinner comes out to $50 per person for a very exclusive meal. Your contribution will help Lanakila Meals on Wheels alleviate senior hunger and isolation (60,000 Hawaii seniors still face hunger).
Still need incentive? You can enter to win a “stay-cation” at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel including a two-night stay in an oceanfront room, dinner at Azure Restaurant and breakfast at the Surf Lanai — a package worth $1500. During the evening, send the Lanakila Pacific staff your photos, and the picture that receives the most “likes” will win. You must be dining at an official pre-purchased Good Table, so buy one now if you want to be able to participate. How easy is that? Click here to see the details.
While you think it over, here are some photos from last year. Your photos don’t have to be taken with a professional camera, they just have to capture the flavor of the evening.
