"Since we want it to be a fun event" said O'Dwyer, "we have included prizes for the lowest score teams as well. You can't lose if you play with the Irish!
"Mulligan's wants to give back to the Maui community, which 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."
Since l991, Hale Kau Kau welcomes the stranger and unconditionally serves a free, hot, nutritious meal on site every evening to l00 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 65 to 75 homebound elderly, ill and disabled.
As part of its commitment to help the hungry of South Maui, Hale Kau Kau, in collaboration with Keolahou Hawaiian Church, provides 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.
