Delicious Hawaiian food, live music and dancing will be on offer this Sunday, March 1, as the parents of the Taft High School Class of 2020 host a community luau to raise funds for grad night.

Held in the Taft High Commons, the evening will start at 5 pm with a Hawaiian feast from Oceans Apart Catering. Michael Dane and friends will perform Hawaiian music with guitar, steel guitar, drums and vocals, accompanied by guest hula dancers and drummers.

A fun and delicious dessert dash will feature a wide variety of tasty treats, sponsored by My Petite Sweet and other donors.

Meanwhile, a silent auction will give guests the chance to snag items like massage certificates, sweatshirts, glass floats and even a leaf blower.

And three choice prices are up for grabs in the Grad Night Fundraiser Raffles. Win a $500 gift certificate from Meredith Lodging, with tickets just $20 each. Or, try your luck in the raffle drawing for a Stihl chainsaw MS250 — those tickets are $10 each. Can’t decide? Try the 50/50 general raffle, with tickets $2 each or three for $5. The winner will receive half of the cash proceeds, or one of several other valuable prizes.

Proceeds from the event will go toward the annual drug- and alcohol-free grad night party.

Luau tickets, $20 each, and raffle tickets are available online at or from any member of the Senior Parent Group.
