Kidz for a Cause Friday Night Foodie Festival

Kidz for a Cause (KFAC) will proudly present “Friday Night Foodie Festival,” a benefit for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawai‘i, on Friday, February 23rd from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Mānoa Grand Ballrooms at the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i in Honolulu. The upscale food station event will feature innovative, farm-to-table cuisine from nine of Hawai‘i’s very best restaurants: 12th Avenue Grill; Fish Hook Café; Mānoa Grand Ballrooms; Mud Hen Water; MW Restaurant; Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar; Tamura’s Kitchen; The Pig and the Lady; and VINO Italian Tapas and Wine Bar. Sponsored by Kidz for a Cause (KFAC), the idea for the event was spearheaded by Brie, Cashel and Chev Kodama – the children of Chef/Restaurateur D.K. Kodama and his wife Lori. More than 30 young people involved with the organization will be on hand to work the event.

Brie and Cashel are on the Jr. Board and Board of Directors of Kidz for a Cause (KFAC). Their brother, Chev, is a student ambassador. “The purpose of kid-run KFAC is simply to help other kids in need,” says Brie. “It started in 2008 and has so far raised almost $500,000 for various local charities that focus on children – The Friends of the Children's Justice Center, Ronald McDonald House, American Heart Association, Kapiolani Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Kids who join KFAC are able to use their own hobbies and interests to raise money for our beneficiaries.

“Growing up, I've always had food and water, a house to live in, clothes to wear, a loving family, and, most importantly, good health. I always thought everyone was as fortunate as I to grow up in such a loving and healthy environment. But that isn't the case. Chev, Cashel and I want to show our gratitude to those who have done so much for us by doing the same for others. It makes me feel good knowing that I am able to make someone's life a little easier.”

“Friday Night Foodie Festival” takes place on Friday, February 23rd from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Mānoa Grand Ballrooms at the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i in Honolulu.
