When a devastating earthquake struck Haiti last year, Chef Roy Yamaguchi (@roysroy) hosted a highly successful fundraising dinner at his restaurant in Hawaii Kai. This time, tragedy struck Japan, and Chef Roy has once again stepped up to “extend aloha” at his flagship restaurant. There was no set price to attend the sold-out event. People were asked just to give as much as they could afford, with 100% of the donations going to the American Red Cross relief effort.

“Our goal is to be a contributing member of the community and a good neighbor,” the menu said, setting the tone for the evening.
