Supporting arts Polynesian style
Submitted By Caroline Sandoval
Polynesian dancers, ukuleles, and island entertainers will transform the Hayward City Hall Rotunda into a reminder of summer vacations and white sand beaches. The October 21 Polynesian dinner and entertainment fundraiser for the Hayward Arts Council kicks off their move to new quarters on Foothill Boulevard. Guests are encouraged to wear their Hawaiian shirts, sarongs, and muumuus to enter into the spirit of the occasion.
Happy hour with complimentary beer and wine and live entertainment will begin the evening. Nani and Friends Polynesian Group, the Hawaiian band Kamakani, and Ka Lai O Mele will be among the entertainers. Local merchants have contributed treasures for a silent auction, and Councilmember Francisco Zermeno will be auctioneer for the live auction.
The proceeds for the event go to support the Hayward Arts Council, which promotes local artists and supports all types of art in the community.
Tickets are $35 in advance or $45 at the door. For tickets, call (510) 538-2787 on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
