CALLING ALL WAIKIKI WANNABES
Once more the combined parishes of St. Luke’s and St. Mary’s Episcopal churches are channeling their inner Don Ho and putting together a Luau Fun(d) Raiser to benefit the food pantry at the Belvidere United Methodist Church.
The luau (minus a large pig in a pit for those with certain sensitivities) will be held at Stout Hall at St. Mary’s, 408 Third Street, Belvidere, right on Garrett Wall Park, from 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 26.
Luau food includes pulled pork, fresh fruit, salads and the desserts for which St. Mary’s is well known. Advance ticket prices are $8 for anyone 12-years-old and over, $4 for kids 5 to 11 and free for kids younger than 5-years-old. Checks are accepted payable to St. Mary’s Episcopal Church.
Ticket prices at the door are $10 for 12 and over, $5 for kids 5 to 11 and free for the little ones. If you bring a non-perishable food item for the food pantry, ticket price is reduced by $1 at the door. Listen to the dulcet tones of Tin Pan Annie and her Hawai’ian (more or less) band. Dress for the occasion if you choose. No Hawai’ian shirt is too tacky.
Great music, great food and a great cause.
