Hungry?

Today might seem to be the last quiet day of the week in prep sports.

OIA volleyball begins tonight while the Ann Kang Invitational, which brings together some of the top girls volleyball teams from California and Hawaii, doesn’t start until tomorrow. Football? No games, of course, until Friday, when the Oahu Interscholastic Association opens its regular season.

Then there’s the big showdown on Saturday between defending state champ Punahou and defending OIA Red winner Kahuku.


But really, today won’t be totally quiet. Down at Wal-Mart on Keeaumoku Street, L&L Hawaiian Barbeque will do its part to help high school athletics. This morning’s $1 sirloin steak promotion has a tie-in to high school athletics.

The one-day event, which begins at 11 a.m. and will offer the dollar-steak plates to the first 1,000 customers, will benefit programs statewide. The funds, as well as a donation from L&L, will be channelled through the Hawaii High School Athletic Association and master fundraiser Keith Amemiya. His efforts have led to more than $400,000 in donations in the past month.

Athletic departments saw their funding slashed by $1.2 millions by the state recently.

“The dollar steak (plate) and 10-cent drink will contribute to the fund, and L&L will also make a contribution. We’re appreciative that L&L has stepped us to help us out. We’re looking forward to the event,” said Amemiya, who is looking forward to a steak plate.

L&L Keeaumoku is located in Wal-Mart. The plate is comprised of an 8-ounce sirloin steak, two scoops of rice and one scoop of macaroni salad.

If anything, it’s sure to be a spectacle — crowded quarters for hundreds of carnivores — well before 11 o’clock. A potential stampede of humans hungry for steaks.
