8th Annual Makai Luau
The 9th Annual Makai Luau, a Grand Strand tradition, will be held at the Hot Fish Club located in beautiful Murrells Inlet, SC.  Save the date and stay tuned for all the fun details for this year.  Past years have featured live music, a fire and hula show from Chief Kamu, a traditional luau buffet, beer and wine beverages, the wildly popular Surfers Punch, prizes for the Ugliest Hawaiian Shirt contest, a Best Lei contest, and more.   All proceeds from this event fund the projects of the Grand Strand Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, a grassroots, non-profit, environmental organization that works to protect our oceans, waves, and beaches. Tickets prices will be forthcoming and will be on sale at area surf shops, through a local Surfrider member, or by visiting Surfrider's website www.surfridergrandstrand.org.  Contact Bruxanne Hein at 333-2034 for more information.
