SHERATON KAUAI’S 2015 HLTA CHARITY WALK FUNDRAISING
KICKS OFF WITH TABLE 53
Sheraton Kauai Resort will kick off its yearly fundraising for the 37th Annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk through RumFire Poipu Beach’s Table 53 program in March, which encourages guests to enjoy a memorable dinner to benefit charity. Net proceeds for all food and beverage at RumFire’s sunset-view Table #53 will be donated to the non-profit event during the month-long fundraiser at the south shore’s hot spot for oceanfront dining. Over $90,000 has been raised for local Kaua‘i charities since the program’s inception in October 2012.
The Table 53 program is offered at RumFire Poipu Beach, the south shore’s oceanfront hot spot, featuring locally sourced cuisine with global influences, exciting cocktails to ignite your palate and over 180-degree oceanfront views from all of its 240 seats. Table 53 features private booth seating overlooking the beautifully landscaped Ocean Courtyard, inviting fire pits, and Kaua’i’s stunning sunsets. Guests can enjoy nightly specials and signature RumFire favorites all while supporting a worthy cause.
Hosted by the Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Association, the Annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk is one of the largest fundraisers in the state, providing an opportunity for Hawai‘i’s visitor industry to collectively give back to its local communities. Since its inception in 1978, the Charity Walk has raised over $26 million for Hawai‘i charities, and all of Hawai‘i’s non-profit charities are eligible to benefit.
“We are proud to raise funds for Charity Walk, which sees thousands of people across the state raising millions of dollars for hundreds of worthy charities in Hawai‘i,” says Sheraton Kauai Resort General Manager Chip Bahouth.
Patrons who are interested in participating in RumFire’s month-long Table 53 program are encouraged to make reservations in advance by calling 808.742.4786 and requesting Table 53, which 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 37th Annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk, gratuity will be paid to the server and taxes will be remitted to the State of Hawai‘i.
