All Hawaii shools, sports teams and any nonprofit organization are eligible to participate. Just pick a date to host your MAC FUNDRAI$ER at Romano’s Macaroni Grill and, in turn, Macaroni Grill Hawaii will donate 20 percent of sales from your supporter’s check to your organization, excluding tax and tip.

“It’s our way of giving back to the community,” says Emi Chang Espinda, regional director of sales and marketing for Romano’s Macaroni Grill and Ruth’s Chris Steak House.

The MAC FUNDRAI$ER program is available Monday and Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Wednesday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Each organization is responsible for promoting their MAC FUNDRAI$ER event whether by distributing a flier or word of mouth. Supporters must simply show up on the designated date and within the time frame with the flyer or mention to their server the MAC FUNDRAI$ER group they are there for. Guests can dine from the restaurant’s full menu, which offers an extensive, flavorful array of Tuscan-inspired entrees, classic Italian pasta dishes, grilled specialties, pizzas and seasonal features, as well as the special Roma Lunch menu (available Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.). Popular dishes include Eggplant Parmigiana ($11.59) and the Chicken Florentine Salad ($11.59).

Romano’s Macaroni Grill has long supported the community through various programs and sponsorships, including the PACT (Parents and Children Together) Keiki Day kick-off breakfast and its popular Noodle Award, which allows teachers and coaches to award students with a coupon for a complimentary child’s meal at the restaurant.
