‘I’m at this point in my life now where my greatest goal is what I can do with what I have for others,’ Fieri told People.

Chefs For Maui benefited the Hawaii Restaurant Association and The Salvation Army Hawaiian and Pacific Islands Division.

The Guy Fieri Foundation will continue to collect donations for Maui wildfire relief efforts.

The death toll for the deadliest US wildfire in more than a century recently rose to 99 after Maui County police discovered additional remains.

Police spokesperson Alana Pico said in an email on Friday that the remains were recovered on October 12 in Lahaina.

An autopsy and forensic examination verified that they were not from a previously recovered individual.

So far police have identified the remains of 97 people from the August 8 fire that wiped out much of Lahaina, a historic town on Maui’s west coast. The remains of two people have yet to be identified. Six people are still missing.

The wildfire started in a grassy area in Lahaina’s hills. Powerful winds related to a hurricane passing to Hawaii’s south carried embers from house to house and hampered firefighting efforts.

More than 2,000 buildings were destroyed, and some 8,000 people were forced to move to hotels and other temporary shelter.

Guy won season two of The Next Food Network Star in April 2006 and has been a fixture ever since on the Food Network.
