Kona Hospital Foundation has been recently named as the beneficiary to the proceeds of “La Dolce Vita” (The Sweet Life), a Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka’upulehui and HI Luxury Magazine fundraiser. The exquisite food and wine event is scheduled for Friday, August 19 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the five-star hotel’s Beach Tree Restaurant. The Friday evening will feature a beautiful ocean view with culinary creations by Chef Nick Mastrascusa.
“Kona Community Hospital provides vital services to our community and we want to extend our appreciation by giving back to them,” commented Robert Whitfield, General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Hualalai. “We are looking forward to working with the Kona Hospital Foundation on other events in the near future.”
Jim Higgins, Chair of the Kona Hospital Foundation, said, “We are grateful to be part of this wonderful event. Our Foundation’s primary purpose is to help Kona Community Hospital and when local businesses and organizations offer to help, we know that we are heading in the right direction.”
The proceeds of this fundraiser will go toward the Adopt-A-Room Project, the Foundation’s major capital campaign that will renovate 34 patient rooms. The transformation of these rooms that were constructed 30 years ago provides not only a major improvement in patient care and healing by having state-of-the-art equipment but a beautiful and peaceful environment.
Tickets to this first-ever event are $100 per person. For reservations, please contact 325-8135.
