The Pavel’s $10M Gift Invests in Premier UH Expertise in Ocean, Earth and Sky

The Pavel’s $10M Gift Invests in Premier UH Expertise in Ocean, Earth and Sky

When Victor and Margaret (Peggy) Pavel designated the University of Hawai‘i Foundation as the primary beneficiary of their estate, they wanted to keep their identity private and preferred no personal publicity for what would turn out to be the largest estate gift to UH in UH history. Fortunately, they gave us permission to posthumously acknowledge them, and let Hawai‘i know who provided the transformative $10 million estate gift that will support UH programs and students statewide.  In addition to who, the Pavel’s more importantly wanted to share with Hawai‘i “why.”  The Pavel’s believed deeply in the value of science education and nature preservation. They felt that UH, with its internationally recognized expertise in these areas, was an excellent investment.

SEED Sprouts a New Dining Experience  in the Heart of Kaimuki

SEED, a new restaurant, is springing up in Kaimuki, serving a unique farm-to-table menu and helping provide employment for the island’s at-risk population.

Located in the space previously occupied by Bella Mia at 1137 11th Ave., this restaurant offers “food on a mission.” The exceptionally healthy menu relies on local sources for freshness and sustainability, while the staff is built around survivors of homelessness, human trafficking, and domestic abuse, along with other at-risk individuals, who receive work training and an economic opportunity.  

“SEED is about doing business the right way,” said SEED project manager Sonya Seng. “Business can be an expression of justice and joy. The name SEED was chosen because it speaks of hope and change. A seed is just the beginning.”
