The Amazing Cookbook Raises Money for United Way


HAWAII (November 2, 2013) – Starting in November, HouseMart Ace Hardware and Ben Franklin Crafts stores will sell a company cookbook to raise funds for the United Way. The fundraiser titled, “The Amazing Cookbook: Sharing Recipes From Our Table to Yours,” is the third cookbook the kama’aina company will publish to benefit the United Way.

The Amazing Cookbook includes recipes donated from Ace Hardware and Ben Franklin Crafts employees from the Hawaiian Islands, Las Vegas, and the Pacific Northwest. The Amazing Cookbook will be sold at all HouseMart Ace Hardware and Ben Franklin Crafts locations in Hawaii. The cost is $10.00 and one hundred percent of the proceeds from the cookbook’s sales go directly to the local United Ways including: Aloha United Way, Maui United Way, Kauai United Way, and Hawaii Island United Way. This limited edition cookbook will be available throughout the holiday season.

The Ace Hardware and Ben Franklin Craft’s cookbooks have been very successful fundraisers, selling thousands of books in years past. “Every time we do the United Way Cookbook fundraiser we get an overwhelming response from our customers and our employees,” said co-owner Paul Mizoguchi. “We hope to continue its success and raise more money for the United Way and our communities that have supported us throughout the years.”
