Two Yamaguchis and a Wong are joining forces next month, combining food and fund-raising for the benefit of the Hawaii Centers for Independent Living.

The third critical component of the event is music — by the band Hiroshima.

Ice-skating superstar Kristi Yamaguchi hosts a dinner concert at 5:30 p.m. Aug. 10 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, featuring the food of chefs Roy Yamaguchi and Alan Wong and the music of Hiroshima.

The theme is "A Taste of California," and the four-course menu is paired with unfiltered California wines by Robert Mondavi. The appetizer is Dungeness Crab Cake Stuffed with Acorn Squash (with the Mondavi 2000 Chardonnay), followed by a salad of Nalo Greens and baby spinach. The double entrée is Filet of Beef Tenderloin with Wild Mushrooms and Whipped Foie Gras plus Pan-Roasted Herb Salmon Steak with Lentil Stew in a Pinot Noir Sauce (with the 1997 Pinot Noir). Dessert is a trio of kiwi, apricot and raspberry mousse with fresh fruits.

Reservations are for tables of 10 only, at $1,500, $2,500 and $3,500, with very few tables remaining. Call 522-5400.

Hiroshima will also perform the night before, at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 9, at the Hawaii Theatre. Tickets are $29.50, $39.50 and $75. Call 528-0506.

The Centers for Independent Living provides programs for children with disabilities. Through Kristi Yamaguchi's Always Dream Foundation, the centers are planning a four-day "Kristi's Friendship Games," to be held at Camp Erdman.
