Easter Seals raises cash

The 11th Annual Taste of Honolulu raised $249,862 in net proceeds for Easter Seals Hawaii.

That amount, based on preliminary tallies from Easter Seals, brings the total raised to $1.5 million since Taste of Honolulu began in 1991.

About 46,000 people attended the event, held June 24 to 26 and featuring two-dozen local restaurants.

"While the public focus of the Taste of Honolulu is the food, the focus for Easter Seals Hawaii is the money that the Taste raises to support our special-needs families," said Billie Gabriel, vice president of development for Easter Seals.
