Hula's Modern Tiki Monday, January 12
Every week both the Phoenix and Scottsdale locations of Hula's Modern Tiki give back to the community through the Mahalo Mondays charitable giving program. And this month, the restaurant will be donating to the Association of Arizona Food Banks. That means 10 percent of all proceeds tonight and on every Monday through the month of January will go to the private, non-profit organization, which serves five regional food banks including Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, Desert Mission Food Bank, St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance, United Food Bank, and Yuma Community Food Bank. For more information about the program, visit the Mahalo Mondays website.
