Last week the community got together for Community Outreach Inc’s Charity Luau. Guests were memorized by the enchanting entertainment. We were taken across the water to Hawaii by the wonderful music of Bill & Mike Keale. Our hearts swayed with The Heart of the Valley Dancers, who danced their wonderful expressive hula in the scorching heat. The dinner was spectacular, and tasted as if it was just off the island.

So why where we all there at the Luau? We were raising money for Mari’s House.  Community Outreach through Mari’s House provides daycare for single parents who can’t afford it. We heard wonderful stories about families who were reunited and able to get back on their feet through the charitable work of Community Outreach and Mari’s House.
