Three’s Bar & Grill Gives Thanks and Gives Back

We are grateful to be here. There’s no doubt about that, especially after the fire in Fall of 2016 that ripped through our kitchen. We worked hard with our contractors and employees to get back up and running in just 40 days, so we thought it was important to take some time out and celebrate with the community.

We held a grand reopening on Thursday, February 16, paired with Three’s (belated) 7th birthday party, and invited the community to share in the celebration and enjoy a powerful Hawaiian blessing by Kimokeo Kapahulehua.

Chef Jaron explains the blessing as a way to let go of the stress from Fall, and welcome in some positive energy as we evolve and continue forward!

“Just to make sure we can move on and start fresh, and I was really happy with it,” he says, “and the people that were here to see the blessing were especially stoked.”

As part of our celebration, we offered our customers big discounts, and maintained our annual birthday tradition of donating 25% of the day’s sales to the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. The nonprofit has been entertaining, educating and inspiring our island through the visual and performing arts for more than 22 years.

The donation is one example of how the “spirit of giving” matters at Three’s. We also have an ongoing Kama’āina Giveback Program to help a different community cause every month. In fact, we donated more than $10,000 in 2016 to various local nonprofits and beneficiaries as part of our Kama‘āina Giveback Program.

“Any customer who’s a local can come in and they get a kama‘āina discount, then we match that same discount and donate to a beneficiary of the month,” explains chef Travis. “We’ve done Team Trucker, American Heart & Stroke Association, Pacific Cancer Foundation, the Humane Society; it’s a way to briefly touch on all of these causes that are important to our community.”

We also welcomed local media at our celebration and are thankful for the support. There’s more media coverage to come, so we’ll keep you posted on that!

Mahalo to our customers and staff for a such a genuine showing of support as we bounce back from one of the biggest challenges of our lives. We are truly thankful for you all!
