Elvis may or not be in the House.

The La Verne United Methodist Church — home of the famous last scene in The Graduate, home of annual July 4 pancake breakfast and home to Troop 411 in La Verne – is also home to the Third Annual Hawaiian Luau on Saturday, Sept. 4, 2010 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. And you’re invited!

There’s no telling what’s in store for those with an adventurous heart. In years’ past the luau has featured hula, fire and Tongan dancers, plus Elvis impersonators. (Blue Hawaii was the first of three movies Elvis filmed in Hawaii, and the Hawaiians have had a thing for Elvis ever since.)

Whether Elvis returns or not, you can count on the Lei Reception to start at 5 p.m. And as usual, the evening promises to be filled with singing, dancing and partying Hawaiian style.

Tickets are a $25 for adults, and a $10 donation for children ages 6-12. Children under 5 are admitted free of charge. Tickets can be purchased in advance by calling (909) 593-2013. Birthday and Anniversary parties of 20 guests or more can be provided with priority seating and VIP treatment for an additional donation fee.

The Annual Luau, hosted by the Church Council Committee, is a benefit for the Church Ministry and Missions programs. The La Verne United Methodist Church is located at 3205 D. Street in La Verne.
