Hot Music, Good Food At 15th Habilitat Luau

If the Hawaiian menu or award-winning musical talent doesn’t entice attendees to “one of the biggest luaus of the year,” maybe the massive live and silent auctions will. All that and more will run at the 15th annual Habilitat luau from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at King Intermediate School cafeteria.

The more than 300 auction items include everything from iPads to power tools to original pieces from local artists, as well as vacation getaways, ukuleles, jewelry and more. The silent auction closes at 1 p.m., just in time for the live auction at 1:15.

But, of course, this is a luau — so guests also can expect to eat beef stew, lomi salmon, chicken long rice, kalua pig, rice, poi, haupia and squid luau.

Meanwhile, Amanda Frazier begins the live entertainment at 10:15 a.m., followed by Robi Kahakalau (10:55), Peni Dean from Natural Vibrations (11:50) and Malu Productions (2:25 p.m.).

Other keiki-oriented highlights include inflatable bouncers from Windward Jump and Slide, balloon animals, face painting, a video game bus and caricature drawings.

The fundraiser supports Habilitat’s services as a long-term drug rehabilitation center, including its Kaneohe facility, vocational training and other classes.

Admission is $35 for adults and $15 for keiki ages 6-12. Family packages are $85 (for three adults), or tables for 10 are available for $275. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door.
