Mahalo Mondays

Throughout the month of May, Hula's Island Grill in Santa Cruz will donate 10% of all Monday evening sales to OSO's 100,000th Student Campaign as part of their Mahalo Mondays program. Please join O'Neill Sea Odyssey each week at this community gathering spot that "is a throwback to the popular tiki restaurants and bars of the '50's & 60's."

Since 2008, Hula's has contributed $159,000 to 56 local nonprofits through their Mahalo Mondays program.
