HONOLULU Magazine was proud to host Ala Moana Center's Preview Shopping Night & Fundraiser on March 6, from 7 to 9 P.M. The event featured an opportunity to be the first to shop at the participating new stores on Ala Moana's new retail expansion. Shoppers also enjoyed delicious treats from Hale Aina Award winning restaurants, including: The Pineapple Room, Roy's, Ruth's Chris Steak House, Romano's Macaroni Grill and Cafe Laufer. The event also featured live entertainment from George Kuo and the Satomi Yarimizo Jazz Band, and specialty beverages from OCEAN Vodka, Better Brands and Glaceau Smartwater, Vitaminwater and Vitaminenergy. Ticket sales from the event helped to raise over $16,000 for Hawaii Habitat for Humanity.
