PAKIPIKA – Chili Pepper Water Auction: Uncle Charlie Young (Kamaʻāina United to Protect the ʻĀina)

[metaslider id=4035]

Donated by Uncle Charlie Young/Maker: Godfrey Kihe – Kamaʻāina United to Protect the ʻĀina

Maker is Godfrey Kihe. Resident of Hoʻokena, part-time fisherman, ranch hand, and all around good guy. You can taste the ocean in his blend of wai nīʻoi. Not too hot and the heat does not linger on the tongue or in the opu. Great on traditional dishes but also a great substitute for other hot sauces. Try on fish tacos, hot wings, or drink directly from teaspoon. Medicinal benefits have long been known to kanaka and Godfrey’s concoction combines many additional healthy ingredients.

Godfrey is a frequent volunteer for Kamaʻāina United to Protect the ʻĀina (KUPA) and participates in many of their community events. His two daughters Ashley and Emmy always volunteer for kitchen duty. A brother-in-law to one of E Alu Pū’s founding member’s, Uncle Damien Kenison, Godfrey is a beloved part of the family.

KUPA is a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on the preservation of cultural and natural resources and culturally sensitive economic development in Ho’okena on Hawaiʻi Island. In addition to establishing an MOU with the County of Hawaiʻi to co-manage Hoʻokena Beach Park, ongoing projects include the Hānai ʻŌpelu Koa Project, the Annual Outrigger Canoe Ono Fishing Tournament & the Annual Hoʻokena Keiki Fishing Tournament.

Beloved kuaʻāina (fishers, farmers and people of the land throughout the islands) near and dear to Hawaiʻi nei have prepared and generously donated big, beautiful bottles of their special recipe chili pepper waters–for our fundraiser auction and for your table! Your generous winning bid is a donation to KUA and helps make this work possible. Auction ends at midnight on December 26, 2018. See here for a detailed explanation of rules. Our goal is to raise $10,000 with your generous kōkua!
