Hale Kau Kau, South Maui's "Feeding with Compassion and Aloha" program, has been chosen again as the beneficiary of the Mulligan's On The Blue Tenth Annual Golf Tournament, according to a joint announcement by Michael O'Dwyer, owner of the Irish bar and restaurant, and Rev. Msgr. Terrence A.M. Watanabe, executive director of Hale Kau Kau.
The tournament will be held on Saturday, Nov. 24, with a shotgun start at noon at the challenging championship Wailea Old Blue Course and will consist of a Four Person Scramble. The entry fee is $500 per team or $150 for single players who will be paired. The fee includes golf, awards, lunch, dinner, entertainment and lots of prizes, including a car donated by Maui Toyota, hotel stays and much more.
"Since we want it to be a fun event," said O'Dwyer, "we have included prizes for the lowest scoring teams as well. You can't lose if you play with the Irish!
Kathy Worley of Kihei is one of the founders of Hale Kau Kau, which will again be the beneficiary of the Mulligan’s On The Blue Golf Tournament. Her husband, Jim Worley, will again be her playing partner.
"Mulligan's wants to give back to the Maui community that has been so wonderful in supporting us over the past years in establishing a true Irish pub and restaurant in the great tradition of the 'Old Sod,' as we say in Ireland," continued O'Dwyer.
Since 1991, Hale Kau Kau welcomes the stranger and unconditionally serves onsite every evening, free, hot, nutritious meals to 100 to 140 children, women and men who do not have the resources to meet their basic need for food. In addition, Hale Kau Kau volunteers deliver a hot evening meal to 50 to 60 homebound elderly, ill and disabled.
As part of its commitment to help the hungry of South Maui, Hale Kau Kau collaborates with Keolahou Hawaiian Church to provide free emergency food supplies distributed each week to 40 to 50 individuals and families.
"We are so grateful to Mike O'Dwyer, Mulligan's, the Wailea Old Blue Golf Course, and all the gold and green sponsors, players, donors and volunteers for their role in making sure we can continue our mission to feed those who are hungry in our community by supporting this tournament," said Rev. Msgr. Watanabe.
