The Japanese Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Hawaii has donated $10,000 to Hawaii Community College.

The funds were the proceeds from the 14th annual “A Taste of Hilo” event held last fall, college spokesman Thatcher Moats said.

The check was presented to HCC Chancellor Noreen Yamane Tuesday during a luncheon at the college’s restaurant Bamboo Hale.

“Over the years, donations from the Japanese Chamber of Commerce & Industry of Hawaii have funded student scholarships and faculty enrichment, purchased valuable equipment, been used to beautify our campus, and more,” Yamane said in a statement. “We are incredibly grateful for their generosity and support.”

Last October’s “Taste” event was sold out and featured more than 30 vendors.

The luncheon included a presentation from HCC faculty member Keali`i Lilly on the school’s Mala`ai Garden, which was developed with the assistance of previous JCCIH donations.
