The Friends is pleased to announce that the luau has been rescheduled for September 6, 2014 - same place, same delicious food, same fun and great auction gifts!

The event begins at 4:30 PM with a no host bar with beer and wine.  Attendees will enjoy a Polynesian style buffet, Hawaiian entertainment, and a chance to bid on great prizes during the silent auction.  

We invite the public to spend the evening on Brandy Creek Beach, watch the sun set over Whiskeytown Lake, and be treated to Tiki torches, tropical-themed decorations, and entertainment by a fire dancer and the Wicked Wahines tribal fusion dancers. 



Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a silent auction and take home one of many great items including weekend getaways at hotels, houseboat trips, local artwork, a Family Membership to Turtle Bay, gift certificates to local restaurants, massages and many more exciting items. “In addition to Hawaiian dancing, we are pleased to offer a music provided by a DJ this year also,” said Bob Shive,  president of the board of directors. “ Our dancers this year are the Wicked Wahines, who will perform after a fire dancer.” 

Tickets may be purchased in advance for $40 each at the Cascade Theatre in Redding, via PayPal on this website,, or from a board member. Tickets sold at the event will be $45 each. The event begins at 4:30 PM and dinner will be served at 5:30 pm. 

All proceeds from the luau will benefit National Park Service programs on Whiskeytown Lake including the kayak program, trails maintenance, and events such as Pick Up Lake Litter (PULL), Harvest Festival, the Holiday Camden House event and the Artist in Residence program.  Additionally proceeds will also benefit the 2015 Whiskeytown Lake 50th Anniversary.  We hope to see you on Brandy Creek Beach on September 6!
