It was an amazing multi-course dinner experience with paired wines at the Sanfilippo Estate in Barrington IL that benefited the Maui Wildfire relief efforts of the Hua Momona Foundation which has provided over 30,000 free hot meals to those affected by the fires. Big Mahalos to the Sanfilippo Foundation and family!
