Highland Community College Foundation's Shindig - 'Luau at King's Island' to offer plenty of Hawaiian food and music

The Highland Community College Foundation's Events and Auction Committee recently released the menu for Shindig VI - "Luau at King's Island," to be held August 20 in Freeport.

Troy and Donna Lessman of Shannon will be preparing a wide array of foods for Shindig attendees. A few items from the buffet include huli huli chicken, sweet and sour meatballs, smoked salmon, grilled pineapple, Hawaiian macaroni potato salad, shrimp cocktail with red cocktail sauce and coconut chutney sauce, and many additional sides.

Desserts include banana bread, white chocolate Macadamia nut tarts, Blue Hawaii mini cupcakes and more.

Shindig VI, the Luau, will be held at the home of Scott and Kathy King on Woodside Drive near Krape Park in Freeport.

Attendees are encouraged to "dress Hawaiian." There will be contests for best Hawaiian costume and for best tackiest tourist costume. 

The Hawaiian sounds of "The Wacky Keys" will provide background music during registration, the silent auction and appetizers, all of which begin at 5:00 p.m. They'll also play after the live auction concludes.

The HCC Foundation will offer its very popular and competitive live auction beginning around 7:30 p.m. Highland alum Doug Munda will be the auctioneer. A sneak preview of this year’s auction items is available on the HCC Foundation Facebook page:
