Duke's Waikiki 'Legacy' T-shirt sales aid nonprofits
Duke's Waikiki has started a charitable program, Legacy of Aloha, to raise funds for nonprofit organizations in Hawaii.
Funds will be raised through the sale of an annual commemorative limited-edition "Legacy of Aloha" T-shirt, available now at Duke's Waikiki.
The T-shirts are $21, and $10 of the purchase price will go into the fund in support of organizations legendary waterman Duke Kahanamoku would have likely supported in his day. Such organizations include water sport-related or canoeing groups, ocean and environmental groups, beach boys, youth and elderly programs and other cultural organizations within Hawaii. Organizations may submit an application form to be considered for donations.
Duke's Waikiki is located beachside in the Outrigger Waikiki Hotel, 2335 Kalakaua Ave. Validated parking is at the Ohana East Hotel, 2375 Kuhio Ave. For more information, call 922-2268.
