Willamette University Hawaii Club Hosts Annual Lu'au

Willamette University's Hawaii Club will host the 19th Annual Lu'au Saturday, April 19, in Cone Field House at Sparks Athletic Center. Doors open for dinner at 5:30 p.m., followed by a show beginning at 7 p.m.

Each year, the Hawaii Club strives to recreate a piece of home in the Cone Field House and share Polynesian culture with the Salem community. The theme of this year's event is "Mau Ke Aloha No Hawaii," or "Forever the Love of Hawaii." Guests will enjoy freshly made Hawaiian food, music and dance performances from across Polynesia, and an opportunity to purchase products unique to Hawaii from the Country Store.

Tickets to attend both the dinner and show are sold out. Tickets for the show only are still available for $10, or $5 for Willamette students and employees. Children younger than 7 are admitted free.

Show-only tickets are available this week at Goudy Commons from 5 to 7 p.m. or in Putnam University Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
