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. Volunteers worked in capacities of coordinating and teaching hula dancers, decorating the Center, ticket sales, soliciting donations, food  preparation, table cloth and napkins ironers, food and beverage servers, picture takers, auctioneers, clean-up, and any other work needing done for this very popular event.
