A local restaurant is also joining the cause. Luna Blu Ristorante Italiano on West Street is offering 10% of their dinner sales from the evening to benefit the fundraising efforts for Maui.
Maui’s recovery efforts will be long, with more than 2,000 structures being destroyed, and in Lahaina, approximately 85% of which are residential properties. Nearly 2,200 people are displaced after their homes have been destroyed or damaged.
“Our hearts go out to the families who have lost loved ones during this time,” said Myers, thinking of the 115 people who lost their lives in the fires. “The loss is devastating and we hope that other Leagues throughout the country and community organizations join with us to help those affected.”
