2017 Club Report


Every year we host our Scholarship Fundraiser Lu’au that provides multiple academic scholarships.

We also have out Bishop Fundraiser that provides cultural scholarships including sending students to Kamehameha Schools Explorations program.

Every November we organize a vendor craft fair in North Phoenix and it gets bigger and better every year.

We also participate and volunteer at every Aloha Festival that is held in Tempe, Arizona. Lau Kanaka started the Aloha Festival back in the 1980’s.  Attendance has gone from a few hundred people to over 150,000 people.  It has gotten so big, that several years ago, it broke off as a separate non-profit entity. The State of Arizona as well as several other states looks forward to it every single year!

We are currently preparing for the 2018 Holoku Inauguration Ball that will be taking place on January 27, 2018 to usher in the new year and all our new officers.
