Outrigger’s ‘Australia Day in Waikiki’ event to raise funds for bushfire relief

Outrigger Hotels and Resorts is joining the worldwide effort in supporting the Australian bushfire crisis by turning its inaugural Australia Day in Waikiki event into a fundraising effort to increase further awareness and money to assist the fire-ravaged country.

The event is taking place from 11am on Sunday 26 January at the iconic Duke’s Waikiki – the anchor restaurant at Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort.

The beachfront deck will be alive with live music from DJ Teley from 11am to 3pm and legendary Henry Kapono from 4pm to 6pm.

Attendees will also be able to enjoy Aussie Day games, a special sizzling barbeque and ice-cold drinks. Australians with a valid ID/passport can receive a complimentary snag and beverage from Duke’s (restrictions apply).

Revell Newton, general manager at Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort, said: “Outrigger loves Aussies. One in four guests at Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort comes from Australia and we have many longstanding friendships and connections with this beautiful country.

“Our celebration of Australia Day at Outrigger Waikiki enables us to say ‘mahalo’ to our Australian mates and do our part to raise some funds towards fire relief efforts.”

As a gesture of support to the country, its wildlife and its people, Outrigger Hotels and Resorts will be donating US$5,000 ($7,252) to WIRES, Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organisation. There will be an opportunity for attending guests to add to this donation.
