The First Ever Dining Out for Kids (sponsored)

Usually it's because you are meeting friends. You want to try the newest eatery. Or, quite simply, you're just hungry. Now, there's a new reason to dine out.

This month, four of your favorite restaurants are giving back for the first ever Dining for Kids event for PARENTS, Inc. All you need to do is eat at Chef Chai at Pacifica, Romano's Macaroni Grill, Side Street Inn Kapahulu and Auntie Pasto's in Kunia on designated days, mention Dining for Kids, and those restaurants will donate a portion of your check to PARENTS, Inc., a non-profit that provides services to parents to help prevent and treat child abuse and neglect in Hawaii.
