Proceeds from this event go to our Dames who Donate Scholarship Fund:

It is our Hawaii Chapter’s goal to offer scholarships for education and continuing education grants for mentorships, both locally and abroad, to kamaaina female applicants who are pursuing careers in the food, fine beverage and hospitality industries. These awards range between $500 – $5000 and are based on financial need, achievement, experience, and potential for success in the culinary trade. The Mission of “Dames who Donate” is to promote and inspire local women to dream big and become leaders in their chosen field.
