Food writer's 'Alice'-themed Maui birthday will benefit Valley Isle hungry
The plan: a benefit party for the cash-strapped Maui Food Bank catered by and held at the new Whole Foods Store in Kahului’s Maui Mall 3 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday March 6.
Jacobson, who publishes the “Top Maui Restaurants” guide with her husband, James, would like to raise $5,000 in cash and canned goods and has even contacted the filmmakers to see if they’d like to help with the effort. Jacobson said there will be red velvet cake and tea, but she’s not quite sure whether she’ll dress up as Alice. In any case, she encourages outrageous hats. Information: 808-879-1177.
