We will have a Silent Auction to include the following items:
1. Children’s Birthday Party Hula Lesson: (Our teachers will come to a birthday party to teach a hula to a group of children [both boys and girls alike]. They’ll bring several costumes for them to wear, so that the children can perform the hula they learned.) We will have three of these for the Silent Auction.)
2. Lū`au Show: 45-minute Hawaiian performance with 5 – 7 dancers.
3. Trip to Hawai`i: In the summer of 2020, we will have a Hawaiian cultural study program to O`ahu (5 – 7 nights’ stay). The winner will receive a trip for one (1) to include: Round-trip air fare from the D.C. area, housing, all included meals, cultural activities, entry fees, and ground transportation.
