A big donation for the University of Hawaii on Thursday of $1 million. It came from a man who many of us know for his plate lunch business.
Eddie Flores, president and CEO of L&L Drive-Inn/L&L Hawaiian Barbecue along with his wife presented the check to the Shidler College of Business.
The money will help fund a real estate lecture series the school is hosting. While we know him more for his food, he’s also very active in the real estate industry.
“It’s a way to give back to the community. I am a very proud graduate from Shidler College a long time ago. I don’t want to say when but a long ago.” said Flores.
With his donation, he’ll also receive a big honor. The Shidler Courtyard will be named after Eddie and his wife Elaine.
