ASSOULINE SUPPORTS MAUI, HAWAII
To assist West Maui recovery efforts, one hundred percent of net proceeds will be donated to organizations supporting the victims of the Maui wildfires through December 2023.

Many of the members in the West Maui community affected by the fires come from the island’s culinary and hospitality industries. This fund will provide immediate assistance to the hardworking restaurant, bar and hospitality workers displaced by these devastating wildfires, which have affected West Maui communities from Lahaina to Kapalua.
