RumFire Poipu Beach’s delicious charity fundraising program, “You Dine We Donate,” will benefit the Kaua‘i Humane Society in July. The signature oceanfront restaurant at Sheraton Kauai Resort will donate July net proceeds for all food & beverage at its sunset view Table #53 during its month-long fundraiser.
Located within Sheraton Kauai Resort, the south shore’s hotspot for ocean front dining features Hawaii-rooted cuisine with global influences and exciting cocktails to ignite your palate every evening. Guests dining at RumFire will enjoy 180-degree oceanfront views from all of its 240 seats. Facing the beautifully landscaped Ocean Courtyard and inviting fire pits, Table #53 is prime seating for viewing Kaua‘i’s lovely sunsets. From its enticing appetizers and libations to signature entrees and irresistible desserts, guests can enjoy a great night of dining and support a worthy cause.
Founded in 1952 to protect Kaua‘i’s animals and to promote the human – animal bond, the Kaua‘i Humane Society is an independent and private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that receives no funding from mainland humane organizations, the State or Federal government. The organization depends on the contributions of donors to continue to fund programs and services that are vital to the community and the island’s animals. Programs and services provided by the Kaua‘i Humane Society include pet adoptions, low cost spay/neuter and vaccination clinics, the nationally recognized pet field trip program, Critter Camp for the keiki (children) of Kaua‘i , the Save Our Shearwaters (SOS) program, and volunteer programs.
“The Kaua‘i Humane Society has been serving our community as its only animal welfare organization, and we are proud to once again support this great organization,” says Sheraton Kauai Resort General Manager Chip Bahouth.
In addition to July’s “You Dine, We Donate” program, Sheraton Kauai Resort will be benefiting the Kaua‘i Humane Society through a silent auction at its 2ndAnnual RumFest at RumFire Poipu Beach, a rum festival celebrating National Rum Day, Saturday, August 16, 2014. A total of over $10,000 was raised for the Humane Society last year as a result of Table #53 donations and the silent auction. A total of over $68,000 has been raised for local charities through the “You Dine, We Donate” program since its inception in October 2012, which in past months benefitted organizations such as Kaua‘i Veterans Center, The Kaua‘i Independent Food Bank, the annual HLTA Charity Walk and more.
Patrons who are interested in participating in RumFire’s month-long “You Dine, We Donate” program are encouraged to make reservations in advance by calling 808.742.4786 and requesting Table #53. The table is available on a first come, first serve basis. Net proceeds for all food and beverage at Table #53 during dinner service will be donated to the Kaua‘i Humane Society, gratuity will be paid to the server and taxes will be remitted to the State of Hawaii.
