Delicious Hawaiian food, live music and dancing will be on offer this Sunday, March 4, as the parents of the Taft High School Class of 2018 host a community luau to raise funds for grad night.
Held in the Taft High Commons, the evening will start at 5:30 pm with a Hawaiian feast from Frank and Jennifer Napoleon of Oceans Apart Catering. Entertainment will start at around 6:30 pm, with Hawaiian music played on guitar, steel guitar, drums and vocals by Michael Dane, Sherwood Phillips, Al Perrera and Tony Lasoya, and the possibility of a few special guests. Featured dancers will be Carol Scanlan, Kepola Napoleon and Noelani Napoleon. Guests can also expect a rousing session of Tahitian drumming led by Lewis Smith.
Meanwhile, a silent auction will give guests the chance to snag items like massage certificates, sweatshirts, glass floats and even a leaf blower.
And three choice prices are up for grabs in the Grad Night Fundraiser Raffle — a vacation package from Meredith Lodging, a spa and golf resort package from Salishan and a $500 VISA gift card. Tickets are $10 each or five for $40.
Proceeds from the event will go toward the annual drug- and alcohol-free grad night party set for June 9.
Luau tickets, $20 each, and raffle tickets are available online at https://squareup.com/store/senior-parent-gpf-association, or from any member of the Senior Parent Group.
