Kamehameha Schools presented a $2,000 check Aug. 6 to the Equip the Kitchens Campaign for the future Hawai’i Community College-Palamanui campus. The presentation was made during the ACF Kona Kohala Chefs Association’s monthly luncheon meeting at Roy’s Waikoloa Bar and Grill.

The donation was funded from proceeds garnered at the 2014 Sam Choy’s Keauhou Poke Contest. In addition, Kamehameha Schools donated $2,000 to the Keali‘i Pauahi Foundation.

The $200,000 Equip the Kitchens Campaign will fund kitchen appliances and equipment in the first phase of the long-awaited campus under construction just north of Kona International Airport.

The fourth annual Sam Choy’s Keauhou Poke Contest is Sunday, March 15, 2015, at the Sheraton Kona Resort and Spa at Keauhou Bay.
