Mahalo for everyone who came to the coolest…and coldest November Luau EVER! We had a terrific turnout of United Way YLS members and their guests at Wild Night Out Waikiki donning their coconut bikinis and Hawaiian flare, as we enjoyed a luau show by Tropical Productions and some fine Hawaiian fare! It was so fun in fact, I even rhyme!
Who doesn’t love to feel the wind… in their grass skirt? And to those naysayers who thought a luau in November was a strange idea, we say “go eat some poi” because we had one heck of a hukeilau!
We were honored to recognize our 2008 Young Leader of the Year Award finalists Mike Hogan, Trey Halbert, Cara Link Mueller and our very own YLS Board Education Chair Bill Kempf, as well as the award recipient, Rachel Muir, founder of Girlstart.
We can’t wait to see our YLS Ohana next year! Our lava is already flowing thinking of themes for WNO 09!
Kelly Caldwell, YLS Board Co-Events Chair
