Halloween at Hoakalei

Grownups, ghouls and keiki alike all enjoyed yummy hot dogs and mini-sliders from Chef Arin and his team.

Halloween Haunt at Hoakalei
Several hundred families enjoyed Halloween festivities at the Club on Oct. 31. Thanks to the generosity of this year's sponsors, the Club was able to provide the community with an afternoon of free family fun.
Keiki cast ballots to decide which booth in the trick-o-treat village was the most festively decorated. Dog the Bounty Hunter and his wife Beth capturing a jailbird couple from Steven Chung & Associates earned the top prize, followed by the engineering team from RM Towill. The prize wheel at Atlas Insurance's booth came in third.
Congratulations also to VA Loans HI/Island Style Realty - their treats were judged to be the best that day.
Chef Arin and his team cooked up a storm of tasty Hoakalei Sliders and Kirsch Sausages to keep everyone fueled up and the folks at Coca Cola and Menehune Water quenched everyone's thirst.
Hoakalei Country Club Members Gary & Mitsy Royster and Ken & Claire Yamagata joined the dozens of volunteers from all the event sponsors to make this first annual event a rousing success.
