Soldotna Senior Center would like to thank all of the exemplary volunteers who worked tirelessly for the center's "at capacity" crowd, Hawaiian Luau fundraiser. The crowd enjoyed a wonderful evening starting with a delicious Hawaiian dinner, entertainment of the talented hula troupes Na Manu Olu, and Pua Mae Ole. There were fabulous door prizes, a grand door prize, silent and outcry auctions.
