Of course, the majority of mem- bers also showed up donning their best aloha wear.

LifeMember and Historical Com- mittee member Gerri Pedesky turned heads in her purple mu‘umu‘u and a rare red lauhala hat. Vintage and modern tropical prints,aloha shirts and intricate lei were plentiful. Upon arrival, members em- braced each other, sipped on their welcome mai tai andmade their way into the Club. Sashimi, oysters, laulau, pipikaula, saimin and a variety of pork options were available at sta- tions set up throughout the Club for all to enjoy at their leisure. Ube-filled pastries and Kona coffee truffles sat- isfied sweet tooths. It didn’t take long for members to hit the dance floor once legendary performer Henry Kapono hit the stage during sunset. Then the sky turned a special shade of pink as the sun went down, and Paula Fuga graced the crowd with her soulful sounds. It was an evening most won’t soon forget.
