‘Tis the Season of Giving
In September, to celebrate 20 years of being colleagues in the Honolulu food scene, 3660 On the Rise chef-owner Russell Siu and Side Street Inn chef-owner Colin Nishida sponsored a golf tournament together. Both believe in giving back to the community that supports them, so the tournament’s proceeds were donated to several local non-profits, including The Arc in Hawaii. Mahalo nui loa to Chef Siu and Chef Nishida for their generous hearts and for supporting the mission of The Arc in Hawaii.
Lei Fountain, Executive Director, receives The Arc in Hawaii check from Colin Nishida and Russel Siu on December 5 during a celebration at Side Street Inn.
If you can’t throw a golf tournament, don’t despair. You can still help The Arc in Hawaii. This time of year is when we make our Annual Appeal. During the holidays, we ask our friends to support the work we do on behalf of people with intellectual disabilities and/or developmental disabilities. Please consider a gift to us this year if you can. Mahalo
