Hui Hoaloha 'Ulana's biggest event of the year is our annual lu'au held at the University of Washington Seattle campus. After months of planning, Hui members work alongside sponsors from the Seattle community to put on an amazing event that emphasizes the unique culture and lifestyle of Hawai'i. Every year, Luau features a delicious dinner of Hawaiian food, beautiful hula and tahitian dance, and great music performances by noted Reggae/Hawaiian bands. We also have our popular Country Store which sells Hawaiian crafts along with our favorite island goodies. And don't forget the Lu'au Raffle offering up some terrific prizes! Join us for an evening of fun and entertainment—it only comes once a year!

The Hawaii Club’s Annual Spring Lu’au is our club’s largest fundraising event, and is also one of the largest student run events on campus. The lu’au provides an opportunity for our club to share our unique culture with the student body and alumni at the University of Washington as well as the Seattle community.

Putting on an event of this magnitude requires extensive planning and coordination, manpower, and especially the kindness and generosity of our community leaders and sponsors as well as our loving parents and family. We have been very fortunate and are deeply grateful for the immeasurable generosity of all our supporters which have enabled us to share our aloha spirit, make new friends, and create many memorable experiences over the years.

Without the loving support of parents, alumni, figures in the community and our company sponsors, our annual Luau would not be possible. With this in mind, we'd like to ask you to consider supporting Luau 2014! We are currently accepting monetary donations via our donations PayPal button, but we are also interested in donations of merchandise, crafts, and other local goodies to stock our Country Store and serve as prizes in our Raffle!

As a tradition, parents who donate to Luau are honored in our evening program, but if you are affiliated with a company and would like to make a donation, be sure to ask about free advertising at our event as a "thank you" for your support! Thank you for your consideration!
