HULI HULI CHICKEN FUNDRAISER
THE McKINLEY HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1985 is holding a fundraiser to raise funds for their 7/11/2015 30th class reunion banquet, for their banquet program activities, ice breaker participation prizes, class photograph, background and main performance music, and after dinner dancing entertainment.
FUNDRAISING EFFORT: They are selling a whole 3-1/2 lb huli huli fundraising chicken for $12 (instead of a half chicken for $8).
IS THIS CHICKEN ANY GOOD?! YES!! :D
Last year they raised funds toward this reunion effort by selling huli huli chicken from the same vendor (Hoku BBQ Chicken) and delightfully found the product to be moist, tender, and deeeeelicious!
If you live on Oahu, you know how hard it is to resist the smell of huli huli chicken roasting on the spit, right?! YUM!!!
Now's your chance to get a hold of some pretty special, piping-hot, fresh-off-the-spit, not often sold or found in any restaurant or store, *really ono* grinds!! :D
Lastly, if you want something quick and easy for lunch or dinner, this would be a welcome addition to your meal planning efforts!! :)
IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND HELPING OUT in this class reunion effort, please call to reserve your tickets (*before* 6/6 chicken pick up day) by contacting Richie Dela Rosa at (808) 852-9968 soon as possible.
Here are their chicken sales details :) --
