Capitol Bake Off Benefits the Hawaii Meth Project

Capitol Bake Off Benefits the Hawaii Meth Project

Representative James Tokioka (D-HI 15th District) of Kauai hosted the 2nd Annual Bake Off at the Hawaii State Capitol with proceeds benefiting the Hawaii Meth Project. Contestants entered their tasty treats to be judged by a celebrity chef panel consisting of Alan Wong, Roy Yamaguchi, Kelvin Ro, and Hiroshi Fukui. The baked goods also had to stand up to customers, who could purchase the treats once the judges had their chance to vote. Proceeds collected from the sale of the goods were donated directly to the Hawaii Meth Project. Contestants also had to provide an answer to the question, “What does the Hawaii Meth Project mean to you?” Winners were chosen by a combination of points awarded from the chefs’ scores, buyer’s choice votes and the contestants’ individual responses to the Hawaii Meth Project’s question.
