KAANAPALI - Duke's Beach House recently donated over $1,800 to Autism Bridges Maui, a local nonprofit that provides support to families with children who have autism.
The donation is part of the restaurant's Legacy of Aloha program that supports local organizations through specially created menus, events and employee donations.
Funds for this donation were raised through the restaurant's nightly Duke's Tasting Menu.

"Our Duke's Tasting Menu is the perfect opportunity for guests to enjoy a nice evening out while also supporting local organizations such as Autism Bridges Maui," said Duke's General Manager Shaughn Helliar.
"An employee from our home office is closely involved with this organization, so we're more than happy to show our support."
The Chef's Tasting Menu is offered nightly from 4:45 to 5:45 p.m. in the main dining room. The three-course menu includes a pupu, entre and dessert for just $25.95 per person.
