Here's the plan:
Quote:
Contributions will be used to move George from his current location to Tork Collaborative Arts, where he will be restored and prepared for display once again. Our goal is to restore George to the way he was when he was built in 1961. Once restored we will focus on finding a suitable location for George to once again be displayed for all to enjoy. However, before this can happen we will need to remove him from his current location and have him restored.
.

We are not using FOM National funds or Foundation funds to do this. The Kahiki Chapter on behalf of The FOM is raising the funds privately through Go Fund Me. Here's a link;

1. Please donate. Every dollar helps.
2. Please spread the word! Post it all over your social media.

Mahalo,

I think they raised more than enough to save George...

Saving the Kahiki’s Iconic Tiki Statue

How Tork Collaborative Arts plans to restore George, the restaurant’s battered yet beloved figure

The most cherished concrete monkey in Columbus has spent the last five years outdoors. It survived an overzealous fan who climbed in its mouth and thrust a foot right through to its base. It’s been hoisted with belts and cranes more than once. George, possibly the only piece of statuary left from the long-mourned Kahiki Supper Club, shows all of his nearly 59 years.

The old guy needs some work.
