Burgers and Things contributes to Hurricane Harvey relief

Local eatery Burgers and Things has committed to donating 10 percent of all sales from Tuesday, September 12 through Sunday, September 17, 2017 to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Additionally, diners can make a donation throughout the month of September.

One hundred percent of designated donations will be used in support of those affected by Hurricane Harvey. The Salvation Army will use donations to provide immediate relief such as food, hydration, shelter, and emotional and spiritual care. The Salvation Army plans to assist in long-term recovery efforts throughout the affected communities.

“When an event as catastrophic as Harvey takes place we should all lend a hand,” said Burgers and Things business partner Elizabeth Hata-Watanabe. “Even from the small town of Pauoa, we wanted to show our support in whatever way that we could to those affected, by partnering with The Salvation Army.”

Burgers and Things has been grilling up tasty burgers and sandwiches in the Pauoa community since August 2016. The man behind the burgers, Chef Ernesto Limcaco started Burgers and Things to fulfill his dream of owning his own restaurant. Today, the eatery offers a mouthwatering menu of different burgers and sandwiches including standout favorites like the Un-Foie-Gettable, Don’t Go Bacon My Heart and Wagyu Say.

Peace of mind By Diane Ako I like to reflect on life. Sometimes it’s philosophically. Sometimes it’s humorously. For all its beauty, life is far too difficult a journey to take alone. You need the support and connection with others to help carry you along the way. Writing brings me that connection– within and without. It clarifies my thoughts and feelings. It helps me reach out to others for advice, wisdom, or feedback. Your thoughts become your actions. Your actions become you. A wise yogi- Patanjali- said, “Speak what is true. Speak what is pleasant.” Let’s speak of things pleasant to one another and seek some peace of mind along the way. ABOUT Diane Ako joined Hawaii: In Real Life in October 2016.
