Help us Bring a Taste of Hawai'i to PLU

We are the Hawai'i and Asian Pacific Islander (API) Clubs, and we have come together to host the first Lūʻau at PLU in over 10 years. We are in the process of building a foundation for future club members and hope to make the Lūʻau an annual event at PLU. This is something you can help us achieve by making a gift to support our Lu'ua this year. As the Hawai'i and API Clubs have grown in the past few years, so has the ambition of the club members. Your gift to the Hawai'i Club and API Club allows us to share the cultures of our members in a fun and educational manner as you voyage the Hawaiian Islands with us. 

E Huaka'i Kākou i Ka Pae ʻĀina o Hawaiʻi!

The theme for this year is - E Huaka’i kākou i ka pae ʻāina o Hawaiʻi!: “Let’s voyage the Hawaiian islands”. Let’s all come together to “talk story”, make memories, and get a taste of the aloha spirit as we take you on a journey through the Hawaiian Islands through local food, live entertainment and dance.
