Get ready to eat, drink, dance, and hopefully catch a little bit of Irish luck at the 2nd Annual Luck of the Irish Supper hosted by the Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay. The supper begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Porter Pavilion at Anaina Hou in Kilauea Saturday, March 14th.
Enjoy a delicious meal featuring the traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner served with carrots and potatoes, a fresh locally-grown salad, Irish Soda bread, and chocolate brownies adorned with lucky Irish shamrocks. Vegetarian options include an Irish vodka pasta. Produce for the event is being provided by the Kilauea Community Agricultural Center (KCAC) located just down the road from Anaina Hou. Dance to the live Irish music by the extraordinary fiddler Tim Took. Enjoy fun games, great food, and green beer. Forget about your cares and woes and dance a jig or two, all in support of our Kaua‘i Community.
Proceeds from the Luck of the Irish Supper support the many ongoing vital service projects of the Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay. The North Shore Food Pantry, which was started by the Hanalei Bay Rotary in 2014, provides food, personal hygiene products, and other family needs for many of our families on the North Shore. The KCAC is a gathering hub for the local community. KCAC provides community gardens for local residents and farmers. The Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay has built the gazebo for KCAC which is to be part of a future farmer’s market, maintains the Rotary Park, and plants ‘Ohi‘a trees, which can be dedicated to an individual.
The club is working to help both the Food Pantry and KCAC to develop a solution where the food pantry and KCAC are located together, a natural collaboration which will benefit the entire North Shore for many years to come and which will help both organizations realize their visions.
In addition to restoring the historic Hanalei Pier, another major passion of Hanalei Bay Rotary has been the installation and support of Rescue Tubes throughout our local beaches. Since this program launched 10 years ago, dozens of individuals’ lives have been saved. This successful program has expanded throughout the state and to the mainland as well.
Other non-profit community endeavors that Rotary Club of Hanalei has been supporting for many years include Growing Our Own Teachers, Aloha Angels, Habitat for Humanity, and the North Shore Community Foundation.
Contact David at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in dedicating an ‘Ohi‘a tree in honor of a loved one.
Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased online at irishsupperkilauea.com or at the event.
