By the time May’s warmer weather comes around, everyone is ready for an outdoor party, and the KPUP Annual Fundraiser Luau always enjoys a good attendance. This year’s event on May 9 was no exception. About 100 people, decked out in tropical shirts and flowers, attended the festivities, which were held at Patagonia Plaza. Inside the courtyard, they gathered at tables, conversing and enjoying cocktails from the bar, until the food line opened. The menu included pulled pork, chicken skewers, asian salad, beans, and a coconut lemon cake from Ovens of Patagonia for dessert. After dinner and an introduction by KPUP Director Jeff Latham, The Flashbacks took the stage, and the dance floor was soon filled. This year’s luau, combined with sales of Hawaiian shirts the two previous weekends, brought a little over $6,000 into KPUP’s coffers. The station hopes to use these funds to renovate and expand its production space.
