McClellan Park, CA, August 31, 2023 --(PR.com)-- In the wake of the devastating wildfire that swept through Lahaina on the island of Maui, Mikuni Restaurant Group’s commitment to aiding disaster-affected communities has yielded impressive results. With a resounding show of support from restaurant patrons, Mikuni announced the success of the Rescue Roll campaign, which raised $100,000 in proceeds to benefit the Hawaii Community Foundation Maui Strong Fund.

"After witnessing the overwhelming response from our customers, we are both humbled and delighted to share that we have sold over 5,000 Rescue Rolls, resulting in a donation of $100,000 to the Hawaii Community Foundation Maui Strong Fund," said Taro Arai, Chief Dreaming Officer of Mikuni. "The support from our community during tough times shows the power of compassion."

The overwhelmingly positive response from patrons has solidified the success of the Mikuni sales campaign, which ended on Sunday, August 27. The funds raised will directly support Maui's recovery journey.
