Foundations and entities that contributed recently to Maui County community nonprofits and others are as follows:
* Duke's Beach House donated $1,482 to Women Helping Women. The funds were raised through the restaurant's Legacy of Aloha program, which collected a portion of the proceeds from the restaurant's nightly Duke's Tasting Menu from April through June. Women Helping Women is dedicated to ending domestic violence through advocacy, education and prevention.
"Our Legacy of Aloha program makes it possible for us to fulfill Duke Kahanamoku's creed to share aloha with others," said Duke's and TS representative Chris Thibaut. "Women Helping Women is fighting for something that every woman and child deserves - a safe and loving family environment - and we proudly support their efforts."
