Hula Grill Ka’anapali always seems to have some sort of charitable event going on.

Hula GrillContinuing their efforts to support those in need, Hula Grill’s bartenders will donate all the tips they earn on “Black Friday” – Nov. 29 – to a worthy cause.

The tip earnings are going to Alen Alik, child of Hula Grill employee “Junior Johnny,” who has a heart condition and other health challenges.

“Junior Johnny is one of our own, and we’ve seen firsthand how his family struggles to support their child,” said General Manager Orrin Cross. “The holidays are the ideal time to show Hula Grill’s Aloha spirit to people in Maui who need it most.”


Funds from the bartenders’ donation will assist with medical needs and travel expenses for Alik, who must travel to O‘ahu frequently with his family for health care.


If all that shopping and stampeding has you frazzled, now you know where to go for a  Woo Woo, Barefoot Blue or Cucumber Margarita. Remember to tip big.
